BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

To the People of Wilmington: 

Your Board of Selectmen is pleased to submit their annual report for the year 1966. 

The year 1966 was a year of dynamic growth and dramatic change. Significant in our growth has been the 
addition of several new industrial neighbors on Interstate Route 93, among them Ling Temco; Polyvinal 
Chemical; the doubling in size of Sweetheart Plastics; and the additional expansion of Avco. 1967 gives 
every indication of continuing the industrial expansion. Your Board of Selectmen has stimulated industrial 
growth to broaden the tax base and to serve the best interests of the community. 

1966 has also seen the completion of the revaluation of the entire community as directed by the special 
town meeting in October 1965. The complete revaluation has served our town well with the assurance that 
every taxpayer will be treated equally and assessed on the same basis as his neighbor. No group of in- 
dividuals has benefitted at the expense of any other group of individuals. We will do our best to see that 
this is not changed again as it was in 1964. 

The creation of several volunteer committees has resulted in substantial contributions in areas long neg- 
lected. Some of these contributions have been in the area of a brighter Wilmington through improved 
street lighting; safety improvements through increased posting of speed and traffic signs and the recom- 
mendations for further safety measures. Examination and analytical studies of the existing rates as 
presently charged by the Reading Municipal Light Department and recommendations for changes have been 
presented to the Board of Selectmen, who in turn have directed that our town counsel (working with the 
town counsels of North Reading and Lynnfield) pursue the recommended changes. 

All the boards and committees deserve the thanks and support of the entire comm\anity for a job well done. 

Great progress has been made by our Redevelopment Authority. The time and effort contributed by the 
members indicates outstanding achievements yet to come. This program can be a great asset to our town. 

The vacancy in the Town Manager's office drew applications from the highest -type professionals in the 
management field. A majority of the Board of Selectmen has deferred action in the appointment of a 
manager. 

A report of successful collective bargaining resvilts between the town employees and management will be 
reported for the consideration of the annual town meeting. 

The Board of Selectmen look upon the year I966 as one of progress and toward the year 1967 with great 
enthusiasm and optimism. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Lloyd C. Bender III, Chairman 
Charles H. Black 
James R. Miceli

TOWN OF WILMINGTON 

MASSACHUSETTS 



TOWN MANAGER 



To the Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

In accordance with the by-laws, a report is presented of the work done and business trans- 
acted during the past year by the elected and appointed officers of the Town, the various 
boards, committees, and commissions. 

With respect to finances, it is to be noted and considered that only about one third of the ex- 
penditures are subject to control of the Board of Selectmen and Town Manager. With 
continually increasing costs of education and the assessments of State and County, the burden 
of holding the tax rate to a reasonable level falls on the one -third budgeted by the Selectmen 
who are obligated to provide for necessary services. It is difficult to satisfy the constant 
demand for improved facilities with the revenue available. With the principal source of 
income being taxes from real estate, the fact that the home owner is in a bind is familiar 
to all. 

While negotiations are constantly going on ' re specting new industry for the Town, a cure for 
ever-increasing expenses of town government will not be forthcoming in the immediate 
future. 

At the approaching Annual Meeting, it is hoped the townspeople will accept the recommenda- 
tions of the Finance Committee, as the members have carefully examined the budget for the 
coming year and have made recommendations as the result of their study. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harold E. Melzar 
Temporary Town Manager

In accordance with the requirements of the Town by-laws, I submit herewith my report as Town Counsel

These figures show the many items that we are concerned with, items that mean nothing to the average 
person who reads them - unless you are included in the list statistically. 



If you have "made the list" then you know what it means. Each and every case must be treated individually, 
and a lot of hard work is involved. 

Our Police (K-9) dogs have been a great asset to the Department - Langone (and Roscoe) - Palmer (and 
Zip). We record their accomplishments as a "Combine" and list the following items: 



The work that the dogs have accomplished is a matter of record, but we can only conclude that they are a 
terrific deterrent to those who may be contemplating crime. 

That about covers all the work we do, and now for the final chapter of this report. My grateful appreciation 
to the Traffic Supervisors for their dedication to their duties, to all Town Departments for the wonderful 
cooperation extended this Department, to the Traffic Safety Advisory Committee, to the Town Manager and 
the Board of Selectmen, and finally to the members of the Department for the wonderful work they have 
done throughout the year 1966 and for the spirit of cooperation and teamwork they have shown. 

The year I966 was a very busy year and a lot was accomplished. We look to 1967 soliciting the continued 
cooperation of all so that we may be able to record with pride our accomplishments for the year.

- 

I hereby submit my report for the year 1966. 



The requests for engineering services continued to increase during the year. The Town Engineer was un- 
able to fulfill many of the requests due to personnel problems and insufficient time. The Engineering 
Department operated on a reduced scale during most of the year with a Town Engineer appointed for a total: 
of 9 1/2 months and student assistance being available for only 15% of the time authorized by appropriations 
The former Town Engineer resigned February 28th and the Town was without the services of an engineer 
until May 1 6th when a new Town Engineer was appointed. The two Northeastern University Co-operative 
students who returned to school in December 1965 were not replaced during the first two months and were 
not permitted by the University to return in March because there was no Town Engineer to supervise them.- 
This interrupted the continuity of employment of students and resulted in only one first-year student being 
employed for 13 weeks from June 20 through September 11, and one third-year student for 3 weeks from 
December 12 through December 31. 

The Special Town Meeting of October 1, approved a transfer of funds from Engineering Department 
Salaries to Contractural Services to allow engineering services to be performed by private engineering 
companies. These companies were engaged to perform surveys on Adams Street and Clark Street for pro— ^ 
posed sidewalk construction and on Ferguson Road and Martens Street for proposed Betterment construc- 
tion. A company was also engaged to perform property line and topographic surveys for the Redevelopmenj 
Authority of the site of the proposed Eames Street Industrial Park. This service will be applied to the ' 
Town's participation in the total project. | 

The Town Engineer, with assistance of personnel of the particular departments, provided survey data, ! 
lines and grades, for the construction of the Town Hall parking lot. Town Beach parking lot, Middlesex I 
Avenue sidewalk. High School tennis court resurfacing, construction of Grant Street and Roosevelt Road ; 
and Garden Avenue pedway. 

The Town Engineer met with the Planning Board at all of its regular and special meetings as an engineerin 
advisor and acts as its agent in the inspection of construction of streets, utilities, and storm drainage in 
all approved sub-divisions. This year saw the commencement of two major industrial sub-divisions; I 
Wilmington Industrial Park, containing 180 acres and a 60 foot wide street running northerly from Concorc;! 
Street about 4, 000 feet for which a preliminary plan was approved and a definitive plan submitted with con-| 
struction expected to begin early in 1967; and Route 98 Northern Industrial Park containing 93 acres and a | 
60 foot wide street running southwesterly from West Street near the Route 93 overpass about 4, 600 feet to 
Woburn Street near the Woburn Town Line for which a preliminary and definitive plan was approved and 
construction started. During this year about 1, 000 feet of roadway with storm drainage was partially com— j 
pleted and 3, 460 feet of sanitary sewer main and a pumping station and 1, 100 feet of force main was con- 
structed and put into operation. Residential sub-divisions approved during this year were Presidential 
Heights, Barrows Park and Pine Tree Park, with construction being started on; Barrows Park, off Wobu:. 
Street, containing 45 lots and 1, 250 feet of Chapman Avenue and 1, 640 feet of Sheridan Road, and Pine 
Tree Park, off Everett Avenue, containing 11 lots and 535 feet of Wicks Circle. Partially completed resi-; 
dential sub-divisions, approved prior to this year with construction continuing during the year were: 
Hathaway Acres Extensions 1 & 11, (Hathaway Road, Draper Drive, Evans Drive and Buzzell Drive); 
Esquire Estates Extension (Charlotte Road); Dell Manor (Dell Drive); Roberts Estates (Roberts Road); ] 
Alderwood Estates (Kenwood Avenue, Redwood Terrace and Englewood Drive); DeCarolis Estates (Marcia j 
Road); Ferguson (Woodland Road and Hanson Road); and with construction being completed during the year 
Forest Park (Frederick Drive). 

Administration of the off-street parking section of the zoning by-law by the Town Engineer continued durin; 




Special Town Meeting approved a complete revision of this section. The revisions consisted of complete 
specifications and increased requirements as to the number of parking spaces provided which is designed 
to keep parking on traveled ways to a minimum. 

Surveys, calculations and plans were prepared for Barrows Well Field Extension and several drainage 
easements. Plans, Layouts and Orders of Taking were prepared for the Town Ways, accepted by the 
October 1 Special Town Meeting. 

The Middlesex County Engineering Department provided engineering and labor to set 140 permanent highway 
bounds on the following streets with the Town providing the stone bounds: Ballardvale Street, Concord 
Street, Federal Street, Park Street, and Salem Street. 

Many complaints were received during the year pertaining to drainage problems. All were investigated and 
solutions for same were recommended but many have no immediate solution due to the extent of the drain- 
age area involved and the considerable expense required to solve the "minor" drainage. Many of the 
current drainage problems have been created by the build-up of the former undeveloped areas along exist- 
ing ways and inadequate provision for the disposition of storm drainage in the past. It is anticipated that 
the proposed drainage survey to be accomplished with funds provided by an interest-free loan from the 
Federal Government if accepted, will give guidance in the form of specifications and a program of construc- 
tion and/or reconstruction of storm drainage works.

I 



HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 



I hereby submit my report for the year 1966. 

As in the past, all regular work was completed before the highway maintenance and construction program 
began, such as street patching, cleanir.g catch basins and culverts, erection of street and traffic signs, 
fence repairing, brush cutting, repairing driveway entrances due to street surface changes and hot topping 
cutting back shoulders and hauling away excess dirt. All the streets were swept clean at least once and 
many were swept several times with the Town-owned power sweeper. New signs were erected at various 
locations warning motor vehicle traffic that the street was being used by children walking to school. 

The Highway Department Garage was made an official inspection station by the Registry of Motor Vehicles 
for all Town-owned and operated equipment only. The two mechanics set up the inspection equipment with 
the assistance of a Registry officer to make sure it conformed to the rules and regulations of the Registry 
of Motor Vehicles. After it was ready and had passed the Registry inspection, all departments in the town 
were notified to bring their equipment to be inspected and stickers applied. Equipment in need of repairs 
were repaired. Before each inspection period, a Registry officer checked the station to make sure every- 
thing was in order. Having this inspection station has proven very helpful and it has paid for itself during 
the first inspection period. The Registry officers have found it to be run very efficiently, including the 
inspections themselves and all records which must be kept of every inspection. 

Drainage - Many drainage problems now exist. A study is being made by the Engineering Department to 
find a way to resolve them. 

Sidewalk Program - Due to lack of engineering, the only section of sidewalk constructed was from the 
MacDougall home on Middlesex Avenue to School Street. The culvert on Adams Street has been widened to 
allow for the sidewalk. Before it is constructed, a drain line has to be installed and several catch basins 
constructed to take the surface water from Fairview Avenue to the culvert near the High School. The 
engineering is now completed. Clark Street sidewalk creates a problem as to land taking and easements. 

A two-week clean-up campaign was held throughout the Town. Work was performed and completed for the 
Superintendent of Public Buildings. Removed all subsoil, back gravel and hot topped Town Hall yard. 
Extended parking lot at North School. Excavated and backfilled 600 feet of trench for water line at North 
School. Widened High School driveway and hot topped same. Hot topped ramp in front of Fire Station. 
Hot topped driveway and small parking lot at the Wildwood School. Replaced bituminous curb in driveway 
at Boutwell School. Graveled and hot topped play area and parking area at Whitfield School. Relocated 
chain link fence at Mildred Rogers School and bath house. Graveled and hot topped parking lot for bath 
house and as a play area for the school from September to June. Constructed pedway to Glen Road School 
from Garden Avenue. Extended play area at Walker School. Hot topped and curbed tennis court at High 
School. Extended Carter Lane to West School property. 

Chapter 90 Maintenance - $4, 300. 00 spent to hot top Middlesex Avenue from Federal Hill to the Common. 
Roosevelt Road completed. Grant Street completed except shoulder dressing. Ainsworth Road cleared 
of stumps and brush. All peat removed and replaced with two feet of gravel. After water main is laid, 
another two feet of gravel will be added. Hot topped North Wilmington parking area. 

Chapter 90 Construction - Ballardvale Street - 1, 600 feet of guard rail installed and relocation of stone 
wall completed. 

Chapter 81 - in conjunction with part of Expense Account. All streets cleared of brush either by cutting 
or spraying. All catch basins and culverts cleaned. All streets swept with power sweeper, dumped into 

24 



trucks and hauled away. Shoulders cut back and dirt hauled away. About 15 miles of streets surface 
treated, n amely: Adams Street, Ballardvale Street, Central Street, Chestnut Street; Eames Street, 
Federal Street, Forest Street, Glen Road, Grove Avenue, Harnden Street, High Street, Hillside Way, 
Hopkins Street, Lake Street, Lawrence Street, Lawrence Court, Linda Road, Marcus Road, Marjorie 
Road, Shawsheen Avenue, Swain Road, West Street, Wildwood Street and Woburn Street. 

Ski Tow - Erected new tow rope and also snow fences to control the area. 

Snow and ice removal still remains a major problem. We now have six automatic sanders. It takes 250 
tons of sand to cover the town once including school driveways, parking lots and pedways. At night the 
department is notified by the Police Department as to the ice on the streets. 




My mechanic, foreman and 1 have thoroughly checked over the trucks and it is our sincere and honest 
opinion that the department needs four new trucks. Three with 4-yard dump bodies and one with chassis 
and cab only. It is very doubtful that the four trucks will pass the April inspection. Replacements 
requested for 1953 International Dump, 1957 Ford Sander, 1958 and 1959 Ford Dump, The 1953 Inter- 
national half-ton pickup is unfit for the highways and has been donated to the Cemetery Department for 
off -highway use. 

In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the various departments for their cooperation 
and help, great and small; the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen for helping the Department solve 
some of its problems.

The new Building Code went into effect in January of 1966 resulting in improved construction standards. 
This code is easy to use and provides for the implementation of new construction techniques as they are 
developed and approved. 



There were a number of personnel changes in the department during 1966. Mr. Minot Anderson retired 
and Ralph Jenkins was appointed Acting Building Inspector. In November Roy P. McClanahan was 
appointed Building Inspector. 

I wish to express my appreciation to all departments and committees for the cooperation and assistance 
that I have received since I took office.

A new 70-inch Locke Triplex Mower was purchased this year. It replaces a 1948 i^achine that was traded 
in. Three 19-inch mowers were bought to replace old ones. 

A new section containing 50 family lots were finished and marked off ready for use. This area contains 
40-4 grave lots and 10-6 grave lots, representing an income of over $5, 500. Construction of an additional 
garage, sixty feet long and thirty feet deep began in June. This was ready for occupancy in December. 
The building was built by the Town Maintenance men who were assisted by the Cemetery Department. One 
bay is being used to store Tree Department and Highway Department equipment and a Maintenance truck. 
The Cemetery Department trucks and tractors were used to assist the Highway Department and Town 
Maintenance Department throughout the year. 

The Town Park, Common, small parks and Town Beach were maintained regularly. A number of group 
and family outings were held on weekends at the park. The ballfield is used throughout the summer for 
Softball. The skating rink on the Common was ruled out by the Town Manager. Flowers for the Common 
and small parks were supplied by the Cemetery Department. The rubbish barrels at the Town Beach were 
emptied regularly. A total of 847 tons of washed sand were hauled to the beach. A drag line was hired to 
spread the sand in the water, making a larger swimming area. The Rotary Park was mowed by the 
Cemetery Department. 

Sincere thanks are extended to all Town officials and departments for their assistance during the year.

TREE DEPARTMENT 



TREE DEPARTMENT: 

During the year 1966, the Tree Department carried on its usual work of tree removal, trimming low limbs, 
removing broken limbs, and removing broken tree tops. These trees are diseased or dead; therefore, 
they are taken to the Town tree dump and burned to prevent further infestation of other trees. Our shade 
tree spraying program is on the increase each year. This is due to the new homes and developments being 
constructed in our town. We continued to trim the trees surrounding the fire alarm system which has re- 
duced short circuits causing false alarms. Our tree feeding program was continued this year. Twenty- 
five trees were treated. Our Christmas tree on the Town common, which has been permanently planted, 
was decorated by this department under the direct supervision of the Town Warden. This tree was donated 
to the town by the late Herbert C. Barrows. We also decorated the Town Hall and Police Station. 

ELM LEAF BEETLE AND DUTCH ELM DISEASE; 

The elm leaf beetle spraying program starts in April and continues into August. This year seventy-five 
elms were lost through the disease. One hundred samples were sent to Amherst State College to be tested. 
Reports came back that forty were infected. At various times we have been helped by the State Tree Dept. 
and the Wilmington Highway Dept. in removal and burning of these trees. The State furnished men, a truck 
and equipment for three weeks at no cost to the Town. To counteract the loss of our elms, our tree plant- 
ing program is put into operation. This program has been in effect for five years. This year, as in other 
years, we have planted over one hundred maple trees in various sections of the town. Unsigntly roadside 
stumps no longer plague the town, thanks to a tree stumping machine rented by the town. Stumps are 
ground down below the earth level, the hole is then filled in with gravel and loam. Forty-five stumps were 
removed. 

MOTH DEPARTMENT: 

All shade trees were sprayed with 6% and 12% D. D. T. for gypsy moth, tent caterpillar, fall web worms, 
aphids, pine shoot moth, oak blights, maple leaf spot and dieback. All front lawns were sprayed with 6% 
D. D. T. for Japanese beetle milky disease. In various areas throughout the town we encountered gypsy 
moth and tent caterpillar nests. These eggs were treated with creosote. 

POISON IVY : 

Brush killer was sprayed on stone walls, streets, and around homes where poison ivy was found. The 
roadside was sprayed with special attention being given to street corners, where the motorist's view was 
obstructed creating an accident hazard. 

MOSQUITOES: 

Homes, swamps and bog areas were sprayed again this year which is the usual practice of this department. 
We also used "Toss It's". These are little gelatin cylinders which dissolve in the water releasing 
chemicals which kill the larvae of the mosquitoes. During the winter months the swamps are dusted with 
a powdered chemical while they are still frozen. During spring thaw, the chemicals contact the larvae. 
None of the chemicals referred to are harmful to humans, fish or wildlife. 

TOWN FOREST : 

The town forest has been cleared of all underbrush. Dead trees have been removed, and dangerous limbs 
have been cut. The road around the forest has been cleared and trimmed. The ball park was sprayed 
with regularity throughout the summer months. Fifty small spruce trees were planted.

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 



This is the third annual report of the Conservation Commission. We are operating at full strength with 
seven active members. The Commission is made up of non-paid, public - spirited citizens appointed by the 
Town Manager and Selectmen, charged with the responsibility of safeguarding, maintaining and improving 
the Town's natural resources. Toward this end the Comxnission reports the following accomplishments in 
its proposed programs: 

1. The Conservation Commission met with Boy and Girl Scout leaders to discuss possible projects 
which wo\ild be helpful in the way of conservation to the Town and the Scouts. These meetings 
resulted in art work by the Girl Scouts for the commission display and in planting over one 
thousand trees in the Chestnut Street wellfield. The Boy Scouts contributed the necessary 
effort to make the Fisherman's Access Area Site on the Shawsheen River more presentable 
and useful. 

2. The Conservation Commission presented at the Annual Election and Town Meeting, a diorama 
to scale of a portion of the Town which lies in the Ipswich River Watershed. In addition, 
numerous photographs depicting land desecration caused by gravel operations, soil erosion, 
and flooding were displayed. 

3. The Conservation Commission sponsored two boys from the Town to attend the Massachusetts 
Junior Conservation Camp where professional instruction about water and soil conservation; 
forestry and wildlife management; use of firearms, fishing, and small boating with the 
emphasis on safety was provided. 

4. The Conservation Comnriission with the cooperation of the Board of Selectmen reviewed tax- 
title land to be offered for auction. Managment and control of several parcels of watershed 
land abutting the major streams were acquired through Town Meeting. 

5. The Conservation joined with the Glen Road School, Buzzell School, and the North Intermediate 
School in appropriate Arbor Day programs with five trees being planted at the three schools. 

6. The Conservation Commission has investigated and reported probable Hatch Act (Chapter 
220 G. L. ) violations and attended subsequent public hearings. We were instrumental in 
the distribution of copies of the Hatch Act and Regulations to all interested persons. In 
cooperation with the Planning Board several development sites were inspected and studied 
for possible Hatch Act conflict. 

7. The Conservation Commission after considerable research determined the desirability for 
Flood Plain mapping of the Town. We engaged the firm of Whitman and Howard, Engineering 
Consiiltants to further study the feasibility of such a mapping program. With the cooperation 
of the Planning Board and its consultants, we will shortly present the Towh with a Flood Plain 
Map as outlined in the Comprehensive General Plan. This Map will be the first major con- 
tribution toward a Master Plan for the Town of Wilmington. 

8. The Conservation Commission's Educational Program is continuing and this year five books 
on Conservation have been placed in the various libraries in town. The Commission also 
has literature available for high school groups, 4H clubs, Boy and Girl Scouts, relating to 
Conservation. 

It is our sincere intent to continue these programs with renewed vigor in 1967 and to extend ourselves into 
all areas of Conservation.

MAINTENANCE OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS 



To the Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington, I respectfully submit my third annual report on 
behalf of the Public Buildings Department. 

The staff of the department has been increased to a complement of thirty-four employees: three new 
custodians for the West Intermediate School; one carpenter for the Maintenance Shop and consolidation of 
I three part-time custodial positions to a full-time position. 

The new bath house was completed on schedule for the 1966 swimming season. Favorable comment was 
received by all who used the new facility. Final cost of the building was $7, 495. 49. 

The new Cemetery building was completed in December of 1966, and is now occupied by the Cemetery 
Department. This building has 1800 sq. ft. of space to be used as a storage garage for vehicles and 
( equipment of the department. Total cost of the new structure was thirty five hundred dollars. 

' The new West Intermediate School opened in September 1966. Still to be constructed by this department 
; are two baseball diamonds in the play area and a soccer field. 

'. The request for a new tennis court-skating facility was voted down at the 1966 Annual Town Meeting. I 

I would like to take this opportunity to explain the reasons for not asking for State aid on this type of project. 

' The town of Chelmsford used State aid and their Building Committee on just such a project and the final 
cost for the five court area was $37, 000. Even if the Town received 50% reimbursement (which it does not 
because of the interest charges on the bonds) it exceeded our proposed estimate by $6,000. Avco Corp.'s 

: tennis courts cost them $20, 000 with the use of their own engineering staff and an outside contractor. Our 
town is very inadequate in recreation and for a facility of this type the cost is minimal for the amount of 
usage they receive through tennis, basketball and skating. This year I have requested two be built at an 
estimated cost of $12, 000 each. They would be built entirely by Town personnel at considerable savings 

:over the cost of outside architects and contractors. 

• 

'The Swain School has been completely rewired, and major improvements to the Town Hall enable us to 
present a more attractive office for visitors and the public. All schools are now connected with the Town 
fire alarm systems. The seven older schools were connected early in 1966 by the electrician. 

/Vandalism has been a continual problem to the Department. Each year our costs to repair buildings due to 
(wanton destruction is increasing. The most serious of the year was the attempted arson four times at the 
:Buzzell School. 

^During the year the department has carried on the continuous work of cleaning, painting and repairing of 
lall Town-owned buildings and grounds. 

iln conclusion, thank you for the opportunity to have been of service to the Town during 1966.

PERMANENT BUILDING COMMIHEE 



The Permanent Building Committee of the Town of Wilmington respectfully submits its Annual Report for 
the year 1966. The membership of the Committee presently consists of John M. Callan, Chairman; 
William R. Harrison, Secretary; Raymond G. McClure; Robert B. Michelson and Lionel M. Baldwin. 

The designing, planning, construction and equipping of the West Intermediate School was completed and th< 
school opened for occupancy in September 1966. 

Pursuant to the authority granted at the Annual Town Meeting, the Committee has engaged an engineering 
consultant to perform a survey of the defective roof at the North Intermediate School and to undertake the 
designing and planning for the removal and re -construction thereof. Estimated start of construction is 
June 1, 1967 with completion by September 1, 1967. 

In accordance with the vote at the October Special Town Meeting authorizing the Committee to proceed, am 
with the advice of the Superintendent of Schools and its architectural consultant, the Permanent Building 
Committee has prepared preliminary plans for an addition to the Woburn Street School consisting of fifteei^ 
classrooms, a library, gymnasium, and other specialized rooms and areas. The addition is scheduled 
for occupancy in the latter part of 1967. Said plans have received the approval of the School Building 
Assistance Committee and the Committee is pleased to advise that the Town of Wilmington will continue toi 
receive fifty percent reimbursement of the principal cost of construction. 

In Memoriam: The untimely passing of Robert H. Barry was a sad loss to the Town of Wilmington and to 
the Permanent Building Committee on which he had served for three years. Prior to his appointment to 
the Permanent Building Committee, Mr. Barry had served actively on other town committees and 
activities. He will be sorely missed. 

The Committee deeply regrets the passing of Ralph R. Currier, long active in civic affairs, and a membe: 
of the Permanent Building Committee until March of 1966. 

The Committee extends its most grateful and sincere appreciation to all of the Town's officials, boards am 
committees for the cooperation shown during the year. 




SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of Wilmington: 

The School Committee of the Town of Wilmington, in accordance with Chapter 72, Section 4, of the General 
Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, herewith presents its report for the year 1966. 

The membership of the Committee was as follows; 




Glen E. Connolly, Chairman 
Arthur V. Lynch, Vice Chairman 
Arnold F. Lanni, Secretary 
Arthur J. Brewster 
Richard E. Keane 
George G. Robertie 

In August, Mr. Connolly, a member of the Committee since 1962, resigned because of added business re- 
sponsibilities. At a joint meeting of the School Committee and the Board of Selectmen held September 12, 
1966, Mr. Robert E. Tadgell of 1 1 Dorothy Avenue was appointed to fill the vacancy until the next annual 
town election, March 4, 1967. Mr. Connolly's term expires in I968. At a meeting of the School Committee 
h.eld September 15, I966, Mr. Arthur J. Brewster was elected chairman until the annual organization meet- 
ling in March 1967. 

The Highlights: Public education in Wilmington has taken major steps forward during the year I966. Com- 



mittee goals were (a) the reorganization of the elementary schools; (b) curriculum improvement; (c) an 
adequate central office staff; and (d) the implementation of state and federal legislation in the fields of aid 
:o education programs, including refinements in existing programs; (e) also to engage in collective bar- 
gaining with all school department employees on salaries and conditions of employment. (On the latter 
.egislative act alone, the Committee held 14 meetings with representatives of the Wilmington Teachers' 
Association, the Massachusetts Nurses' Association, and the Wilmington Town Employees' Association to 
work out agreements that would comply with the spirit as well as the letter of the act. This was almost as 
Tiuch time as the Committee needed to transact all of the school department business for the School year 
1965. ) 

\mong the most significant steps which the Committee took to realize the above goals were the following: 

The election of Mr. Walter H. Pierce, former Supervising Principal of the Boutwell School 
District, as Assistant Superintendent of Schools to assist the Superintendent of Schools in the 
total operation of the public school program. 

The election of Mr. Harold E. Driscoll, former Assistant High School Principal, as Director of 
State and Federal Programs to coordinate federal aid to education acts as they affect the Town of 
Wilmington. 

The election of Mr. Paul E. Bodenstein, former Teaching Principal of the Wildwood School, as 
Elementary School Adjustment Counselor to be responsible for helping and counseling emotionally 
disturbed children in grades one through six, utilizing the services of clinics, social agencies, 
the police, and the schools. 



33 



5. The election of the Misses Joanne M. Myers and Dorothy C. Nylin as non-teaching principals 
of the Wildwood School and the Woburn Street School respectively was the first of a series of 
steps in the reorganization of the elementary schools. It is the hope of the Committee that 
when the reorganization is complete, no non-teaching elementary principal will administer 
more than one elementary school, two at the most, in order to provide better administrative 
and supervisory services for the pupils and the teachers. The phasing out of the position of 
building and/ or teaching principal as it has long been known in Wilmington will be part of the 
reorganization. 

6. The adoption of new salary schedules and caiditions of employment for teachers, nurses, 
secretaries, and cafeteria employees. The new salary schedule for teachers has a $5, 500 
to $9, 700 range, depending upon training and experience. The new salary schedule for the 
nurses has a $4,000 to $5,000 range. All secretaries were reclassified calling for an 
hourly rate range of $1. 75 to $Z. 70, depending upon classification and experience. The new 
hourly rate range for cafeteria employees is $1. 35 to $2. 05, depending upon classification. 
In addition, liberal sick leave and other benefits were included in the several agreements 
entered into by the Committee and the representatives of the various employees of the school 
departme nt. 

Other noteworthy actions taken by the Committee to move the public school program forward were: 

1. Opened the new West Intermediate School in September with an enrollment of 565 students 
in grades six, seven, and eight, and a staff of 25 teachers and 1 administrator. This 
school f\ilfills the same function as the North Intermediate School, which was opened in 
1962. It is the second of three such schools called for in the long range school building 
program. 

2. Added 26 teachers to the staff to upgrade programs in Art, Music, Physical Education, 
Reading, and Special Services, and to take care of growth. 

3. Initiated action for the approval of federal and state projects totalling $55, 389. 00 in the 
fields of Guidance, Reading, Science, Social Studies, Business, and Pre-school Education. 
All projects were designed to improve existing programs in these fields through the use of 
modern instructional materials and equipment, individualized instruction, and advanced 
counseling and testing techniques. 

4. Added 15 more instructional minutes per day to the time schedule of the elementary schools 
to comply with a new State Board of Education ruling that the elementary school day shall 
not be less than five hours of instructional time. 

5. Approved a revision of the elementary school report card to start with the second marking 
period in February 1967. 

6. Adopted new textbooks in the fields of social studies, mathematics, Spanish, and English. 

7. Initiated action in conjunction with the Permanent Building Committee and the School 
Building Assistance Commission to construct one new elementary School and two additions 
to existing elementary schools. 

8. Approved a special ten hour Civil Defense Course in "Personal and Family Survival" for 
juniors and seniors in the High School. 

9. Strengthened the physical education program in the elementary schools by the addition of 
a new staff member. 



34 



The Staff: Last June, Mrs. Sybil Wiberg, veteran educator, retired from active service in the schools. 
Mrs. Wiberg was appointed to the Walker School faculty in 1928; appointed teaching principal of the Walker 
School in 1938; and appointed reading supervisor, grades one through three, in 1956. Also retiring the 
past year was Wilhelmina DeLisle, Supervisor of the Cafeterias, after 14 years of service. Over the 
years, they have contributed significantly to the advancement of the public schools in Wilmington. 

The sudden and untimely passing of Miss G. Louise McManus, Business Teacher in the High School, left 
colleagues, students, and friends with a deep sense of personal loss. Miss McManus was appointed to the 
High School Staff in 1962. 

During the year, the Committee elected 17 teachers to tenure, appointed 63 teachers to fill staff vacancies 
or new positions, and granted 4 leaves of absence. Resignations were accepted from 31 teachers for the 
following reasons: 

2 Maternity 

2 Study for Advanced Degrees 
6 Counselled Out 

14 Other Teaching Positions 

3 Professional Advancement 

4 Personal or Family Responsibilities 

The Building Program: The long range school building program of the Committee has four objectives: 

1. To keep all of the students on full daily sessions. 

2. To provide spaces that will meet the curriculum demands expected in the next ten 
years -- kindergartens, libraries, gymnasiums, laboratories, to mention a few. 

3. To reduce ove rc rowdedne s s . 

4. To replace obsolete schools. 

The Committee's latest review of school building needs, based on the above objectives, reveals that in the 
next five years, the Town will have to construct two elementary schools, a substantial addition to the High 
School, and an Intermediate School at a total estimated cost of $5, 000, 000. 

To Conclude: Schools were in session 180 days, beginning September 8, 1965 and ending June 21, 1966. 
The Committee held 24 regular meetings and 14 special meetings during the year. 

The Committee extends its deep appreciation to the entire staff of the School Department, and to the 
parents for their cooperation, understanding, and support during the year.

SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



I herewith submit my seventh Annual Report as Superintendent of the Wilmington Public Schools. This 
report is for the year ending December 31, 1966. 

Annual Reports of school superintendents in Massachusetts usually present a broad resume of recent pro- 
gress in their respective school systems. I have followed this custom in Wilmington for the past six years, 
but it seems to me that this year is an unusually appropriate time to single out for special attention two 
pieces of recent legislation that are having a vital effect on public education. 

The two legislative acts are (1) the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, a federal act, and 
(2) The Act to Improve and Extend Educational Facilities in the Commonwealth, a state act growing out of 
the Willis Harrington Report to the General Court in 1965. 

THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT OF 1965 

In April of 1965, President Johnson signed into law the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. 
The Act authorizes over $1. 4 billion in federal funds to strengthen and to improve educational quality and 
opportunities in the nation's schools. There are five titles of this act. Wilmington has a stake in three of 
them -- Titles I, II, and III. 

Title I is aimed at providing better schooling for educationally deprived children. Each school system 
within the state is allocated a certain sum for this purpose according to the number of children from low 
income families residing in the town. Wilmington's share for 1966 was $24, 725. 

On Saturdays from 9 o'clock in the morning to 12 noon at the '"'^ildwood School, one hundred children from 
grades 1-6 are receiving the most highly specialized reading instruction in the history of the Wilmington 
Schools. It was made possible by the Title I fund. Classes are small, no more than six; are almost 
clinical in nature; and are under the supervision of teachers specially trained for this program. Children 
receive instruction on an individual basis in phonetics, word meaning, comprehension, study skills, visual 
perception, word meaning, comprehension, study skills, visual perception, word recognition, and reading 
for personal pleasure. The use of modern visual machines, manufactured specifically for reading instruc- 
tion and related activities, make it possible for each child to progress to the full extent of his capabilities. 
The children also participate in field trips, assemblies, shows, and recreational activities -- all of which 
are designed to build up their cultural and environmental background that is so necessary in any remedial 
reading program. It is a splendid program, and its impact is already being felt after only four sessions. 
The program, however, does have eligibility requirements which are a source of some disappointment and 
unhappiness to many parents and school officials. By federal regulations governing Title I procedures, 
only 100 children from the areas of the Boutwell, Buzzell, Glen Road, Wildwood, Walker, and West 
Intermediate (Grade 6) Schools are eligible for the Saturday morning classes. These schools are known as 
"target schools" because of the high incident rate of low income families living in these areas of the town. 

To enroll children who do not attend the "target schools", but nevertheless need help in reading, would 
jeopardize the grant. Only after children who need help in reading the "target schools" are cared for can 
the Saturday classes be opened for children in the other schools. To overcome this inequity, the Reading 
Department will: (a) concentrate more of its time during the regular school year on children in the non- 
target schools who need help in reading, and (b) use the modern instructional equipment paid for by the 
grant in the teaching of reading throughout the entire system. 

Title II: This title of the act is designed to help improve the quality of education in schools by assisting 
them to provide instructional materials in quantities which heretofore had been impossible. The title 



36 



authorized a naticnal distribution of $100, 000, 000 for school library resources, textbooks, and other in- 
structional materials. The share of Massachusetts this year was a little over $2, GOO, 000 of which Wilming- 
ton received $9, 697. 90. This amount was distributed on a per capita basis to all schools in the town. The 
funds could be expended only according to the following provisions: (a) Not less than 70% of an allotment 
was to be expended for printed library materials, (b) Not more than 19% of an allotment was to be expended 
for textbooks, and (c) Audio visual materials could take a maximum of 30%. The School Department availed 
itself of this grant; and because of it, the reference sections in all areas of the curriculum, the supply of 
library books, and the film library have been upgraded immeasurably. The effect of this program has been 
so worthwhile that the principals have already initiated project applications for the 1967 - 1968 school year. 

Title III: This title is known as PACE, or Projects to Advance Creativity in Education. Distribution of 
funds nationally for this title amounted to $75, 000, 000. Massachusetts was allocated $1, 900, 000 last year. 
Two types of proposals are called for to meet the requirements of this title, planning and operative. 

The School Departments of Burlington, Lynnfield, North Reading, Reading, Stoneham, Belmont, Wakefield, 
Winchester, Wilmington, and Woburn - -in conjunction with the Burlington campus of Northeastern 
University -- are in the process of forming an association to study and identify a project of mutual concern 
in the development of the public schools in this area. The services of the New England School Development 
Council are being utilized in the planning and preparation of the project application. Wilmington is in good 
company in undertaking a joint Title III project, since over 100 communities in eastern Massachusetts are 
currently engaged in Title III planning in nine large regional areas and, since such programs are primarily 
those which can be provided more efficiently by serving several communities rather than an individual 
school system. 

Programs which might be undertaken under this title are: 

(a) A regional curriculum center. 

(b) Regional classes for the mentally disturbed. 

(c) Regional classes for the exceptionally able. 

Needless to say, this title has tremendous possibilities, but in no way does it commit the town to continue 
as a member of a region should it choose not to do so at a subsequent date. 

THE ACT TO IMPROVE AND EXTEND EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES IN THE COMMONWEALTH 

This Act, which was signed into law in Jxine, 1965, as a resiilt of the so-called Willis Report, gave a new 
State Board of Education almost sweeping powers to improve elementary and secondary education in the 
Commonwealth. For example, the Board: 

( 1) Shall establish the minimum length of a school day and the minimum number of days in the 
school year. 

(2) Shall approve the educational standards for appointments for professional personnel in the 
public schools. 

(3) Shall establish maximum pupil teacher ratios for classes in public elementary and secondary 
schools. 

(4) Shall establish the permissible and mandatory ages for school attendance. 

(5) Shall establish minimum educational standards for all courses which public schools require 
their students to take. 

(6) Shall establish minimum standards for all public school buildings. 



37 



f 

(7) Shall see to it that all School Committees comply with all laws relating to the operation of the 
public schools; and in the event of noncompliance, the Commissioner of Education shall refer 
all such cases to the Attorney General of the Commonwealth for appropriate action to obtain 
compliance. 

In general, the new Board of Education shall support, serve, and plan general education in the public 
schools. It should be understood by the citizenry that former Boards of Education in the Commonwealth 
could only recommend standards. The new Board, under the above Act (Chapter 572, Section la), has 
statutory authority to mandate standards such as outlined above for the operation of the public schools in 
the state. 

What does all this mean for the school children of Wilmington? It means that children not yet in school will 
start their education in kindergarten instead of grade one, will be going to school in modern buildings, will 
be going to school more than 180 days a year, will have a longer school day, will be in smaller classes 
than their parents, will have better educated teachers, will have more stimulating teaching materials, and 
will have the use of a library at all levels of their schooling. If we are to properly educate our children, 
the majority of whom will be living and working most of their lives in the twenty-first century, this is 
probably as it should be -- however painful the cost. 

These are only two pieces of legislation that are affecting education in Wilmington. There are many others 
that the public should know about, but space limitations in an Annual Town Report preclude their coverage. 
Therefore, during the coming year, it is the intention of the S^'chool Administration and the Staff to publish 
a quarterly newsletter that will report on all school activities, projects, and programs that are currently 
in the schools for dissemination to the general public. 

In conclusion, I extend on behalf of the entire staff of the School Department our warmest thanks for your 
good will and cooperation. It is a privilege to serve you as your Superintendent of Schools.

On November 16, 1965, the Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational/Technical School District was establishe 
by an affirmative vote of the five (5) towns, as verified by the Town Clerk of each respective town. All 
Regional School Committee members were properly appointed by November 26, 1965 and were sworn into 
office. The membership and terms of office were as follows: 

Tewksbury Mrs. Anthony Anderson 1967 
Mrs. William Bullen 1968 

Wilmington Mr. Richard Pelletier 1967 
Mr. Richard Keane 1968 



Our first meeting was held in the School Administration Building, Billerica, Massachusetts. Mr. Richard 
Keane was elected Chairman. Mr. John Glavin was elected Vice Chairman and Mr. Wallace Haigh was 
elected Secretary-Treasurer. 

In December of 1965, the Committee voted that the official name of the district shall be the "Shawsheen 
Valley Regional Vocational/Technical School District". At this time, also, the Committee felt that it was 
essential to establish two advisory committees to assist the District Committee in planning for the school. 
The school superintendents of the five member towns were appointed to an educational advisory committee 
and the Chairman, or his delegate, of each member towns" Finance Committee was appointed to a financial 
advisory committee. 

Following the March Annual Town Elections, the Committee welcomed the first three members to be 
elected by their towns to serve for three years on the Committee: Mr. Cipoletta - Burlington; Mr. Rogers 
Bedford; and Mr. McCue from Billerica. 

As required in the agreements under which the Regional School District operates, elections were held in 
early April to elect officers for I966. All incumbent officers were reelected. By-laws were adopted 
governing the procedure and conduct of affairs of the District Committee. 

A number of banking institutions were considered for selection as the District's Fiscal Agent. The field 
was narrowed to five banks, whose representatives were invited to appear before the committee. After 
careful consideration, the New England Merchants National Bank was selected. 



The law firm of Ropes and Gray of Boston was retained as Bond Counsel, 
selected as Legal Counsel to the District. 



Later, this firm was also 



Nine architectural firms were interviewed and the firm of Korslund, LeNormand & Quann, Inc. was 
selected as the architect for the proposed school. This firm has designed and built more Regional 
Vocational/Technical Schools in Massachusetts than any other architect. 

Mr. Richard Pelletier of Wilmington resigned in June, and the vacancy was filled by the appointment of 
Mr. Frank McLean. 



The Committee considered twenty applications for the position of Superintendent-Director 
tions were conducted by the State Department of Education, Division of Vocational Education 



Written examiii 
Sixteen ' 



40 



qualified candidates were personally interviewed by members of a Selection Sub -committee. The 
Committee felt strongly that the Superintendent-Director represents and important voice in planning for 
the new school. Therefore, on the recommendation of the sub -committee, the full committee interviewed 
seven prime candidates. 

After careful study of qualifications and thorough investigation of the leading candidates, Mr. Benjamin 
Wolk was engaged for the position. He is a graduate of Boston Trade High School, the Lowell Institute 
School at MIT, has a B.S. in Vocational Education from Massachusetts State College at Fitchburg, and a 
M. of Ed. from Boston University. He has worked in the field of welding and metal fabrication. Mr. Wolk 
has twenty years of experience as a shop and related subject instructor. He was also in the field of 
guidance and administration for six years. 

A Site Sub-committee considered a number of areas that might be suitable for the location of the regional 
school. Final consideration was given to three possible sites. These sites were visited by the architect, 
the State District Sanitary Engineer and a representative of the Massachusetts School Building Assistance 
Commission. Tentative approval was given two of the sites as being suitable for the school. The 
Committee has tentatively selected a site which is central to the district and located on Cook Street in 
Billerica. 

The District Committee voted authorization to incur debt in the amount of $300, 000. The five member 
towns were officially notified of this action. None of the towns disapproved of this authorization, and the 
Massachusetts Emergency Finance Board has since approved. This money will be borrowed as needed to 
finance the acquisition of land, to pay for architects' fees, engineering, and other related planning costs. 

The official seal for the School District was designed by Mr. James Cipoletta and incorporated into an 
embossing seal for use on official documents. 

The Committee voted an operating budget of $45, 000 for the year 1967. The amount to be raised by taxa- 
tion is $7, 079. 71 apportioned among the five member towns. 

During 1967, the Committee will finalize the educational specifications. The architect will prepare work- 
ing drawings and construction should be under way with a target date for completion of July 1969. 

All meetings of the Shaw sheen Valley Regional Vocational/Technical School District Committee are open 
to the public. All interested citizens are invited to attend. Regular meetings are held on the second and 
fourth Tuesdays of each month in the District's new office at 240 Cambridge Street, Burlington. 

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT -DIRECTOR 

i 

[This report covers a 4 1/2 month period starting August 15, 1966 at which time I was appointed as 
Superintendent-Director. The initial phase of the program was both informational and exploratory. The 
general objective was to establish the curriculum for the Regional Vocational/Technical School. Meetings 
were held in the beginning of the school year with the school superintendents of the five towns as well as 
with the guidance counselors. Discussions were concerned with recommendations as to how this school 
could meet the needs of the students not going to college. In the meantime, an intensive occupational 
study was made to determine the present and future skill needs of industries in the region, and in the 
ligeneral area. In concluding the first phase of the program, meetings were again held at which time 
'ischool superintendents, guidance counselors, and representatives of the State Department of Vocational 
itEducation were invited to comment on the proposed curriculum and the enrollment policies to be followed. 
[In the near future, the curricialum will be established and educational specifications will be formulated. 

!il anticipate that some of the basic features of the vocational education program will include the following: 

j ' ADMISSION: 

iStudents will be accepted on the basis of their previous record, reoommendations of the respective guidance 



41 



counselors, and a personal interview. In some areas, we may find it necessary to give aptitude tests to 
determine if the applicant is suited for a particular type of training. 

MULTI-LEVEL PROGRAM: 

Students would be classed in three general areas in accordance with their ability: 

A. Trade Technician; Students with a high level of ability would fall into this category. We anti- 
cipate that they would have in addition to their shop work an academic program which would 
prepare them for jobs in industry as technicians, or for higher education at schools such as 
technical institutes, junior colleges, etc. 

B. Trade Mechanic: Students in this area would be of average ability, and would be given shop 
experience and academic training to qualify them for jobs in industry. 

C. Basic Mechanic: This would be for those students who have limited academic ability, but 
have an interest and the desire to acquire a skill. These students would be given the necessary 
academic studies that are within their capabilities. They would have an opportunity in shop 

to progress and develop a skill according to their capacity. 

EXPLORATORY: 

Students accepted in Grade 9 at this school would go through an Exploratory Program. In the course of the 
school year, they would have experience in several different training areas. In addition, they would be 
given the opportunity to learn about and see the other courses in operation and realize the skills needed in 
each. At the end of the school year, Grade 9 students would be required to make a choice of the particular 
type of training which they wish to take. We hope to coordinate our educational program with that given in 
the member towns so that a student who is not suited for this type of training could transfer back to his town 
high school and be able to continue his academic work there. In setting up the trade -technical courses, we 
will endeavor to establish core areas of training which will permit us flexibility as far as training for 
specific skills to meet the changing needs of industry. 

Since 50% of the school time will be devoted to shop or laboratory work, the program will alternate so that 
the students would have a week of shop and alternate weeks in academic studies. 

Shop training woiold be the closest to the ideal concept of education wherein a student could progress indi- 
vidually in accordance with his or her ability. Having mastered the basic fundamentals of shop work, the 
student would do a series of jobs each requiring more skill than the previous one. In this way, the student 
wo\ild be trained individually to the limit of his or her ability. 

Until the school building is completed, we are operating from an office at 240 Cambridge Street, Burlington. 

It is very encouraging to see the cooperation and sincerity of the many people who have been helpful in this 
vocational educational project. It has been a pleasure to work with the members of the Regional School 
Committee, and the personnel of the schools in the region. 



CONSTABLE 



I herewith submit my report as Constable of the Town of Wilmington for the year ending 1966. 

During the year, I have posted notices and warrants for the Annual Town Meeting, Special Town Meetings, 
State Primary and State Election in accordance with the by-laws of the Town of Wilmington. I have also 
served and posted notices for other officers and departments of the town.

Seven appearances were made by the Board at the Woburn District Court on 
matters relating to Public Health. 

The Board also appeared twice as a witness in behalf of the Town in Superior 
Court involving a land taking by the Town. 

The Board wishes to extend their thanks this year again to the school nurses for their continued interest 
and assistance in the Board's various clinics, and also to all the helpful volunteers who assist at these 
clinics. They wish to thank St. Thomas' Church for their generous use of Villanova Hall. 



BOARD OF REGISTRARS 



In accordance with Section 1, Chapter 3, of the Town By-laws, meetings of the Board of Registrars are 
held on the second Monday of each month for the registration of voters and the conduct of business. Undeij 
Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958, this meeting is open to the public and the press, and is so posted in the 
Town Hall. 

Three All-Day Registrations were held as posted. The Board held nine extra meetings for the purpose of 
certifying names on nomination papers and warrant articles. 

Women married prior to January 1 must re-register under their marriage name. Naturalized citizens 
must have their naturalization papers with them when registering. 

In order to keep the voting list as up to date as possible, the Board annually compares the voting list with 
the yearly census. If a voter's name does not appear in the census, it is subject to removal from the 
voting register. 

New residents are requested to notify the Board of Registrars of the date which they take residence in the 
town. Any change of address within the town during the year should be brought to the attention of the 
board so that your name will not be removed from the voting list inadvertently.

BOARD OF PUBLIC WELFARE 



The Wilmington Board of Public Welfare respectfully submits its Annual Report for the year 1966. The 
Board consists of Mr. Maurice O'Neil, Chairman of the Board, Miss Florence Balkus and Mrs. Anna Low 
as members of the Board. 

The five full time employees of the Board are Walter F. Coleman, the Director of Public Assistance, who 
also serves as secretary to the Board, Miss Rosemary Devaney and Mrs. Rosemary Camillieri are the 
Social Workers, Mrs. Irene Manning and Mrs. Mildred Dolan are the Clerk-Typists. All employees of 
the Welfare Board are hired under the Merit System and have Civil Service status which is required under 
the law. 

The five categories of assistance under the supervision of the Board of Public Welfare are: General 
Relief, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Disability Assistance, Old Age Assistance, and Medical 
Assistance. The last four categories come under the supervision of the Department of Health, Education 
and Welfare and the State Department of Public Welfare , and we are reimbursed for the greater portion of 
the aid rendered by the Federal and State governments. General Relief is supported jointly by the State and 
local governments, with the Town assuming 80% of the cost of this category. 

All residents of Massachusetts have a right to apply for public assistance and to receive financial assistance 
Iplus social services if they are needed. 

They also have a right to expect that their applications will be processed promptly, that they be interviewed 
Kn privacy, treated with respect and consideration and that all information given be safeguarded with the 
strictest confidence. 

The eligibility requirements, policies and procedures of public assistance cannot be considered as limita- 
(ions that restrict the activity, scope or goals of the Agency administering public assistance. They should 
oe regarded as opportunities to provide a variety of social services in addition to the financial help which 
will enable families and individuals to attain or retain the capability for independence and self-support, to 
naintain and strengthen family life, to promote a healthy population, to prevent illness, and to furnish 
iconomic, social and physical rehabilitation where necessary. 

The present welfare situation is one of growing concern to this Agency due to the increase in the number of 
ipplicants despite the prosperity all around us. The increasing number of applicants for Aid to Families 
vith Dependent Children is due to the increased number of separations and divorces, and the breakdown of 
ihe moral fiber of the family unit. We also find that people lacking education are unable to secure work 
or any duration, which contributes to discord within the family and eventual breakup. Many of these people 
lire functionally illiterate and unable to cope with automation or the impersonal machine. 

Our aim with this type of parent is to prevent the perpetration of this illiteracy with their children. We 
must motivate these children toward higher education so that they will not inherit the poverty of their 
parents. Relief alone is not enough, it must be accompanied by services. 

DLD AGE ASSISTANCE 

This category is a Fede rally- sponsored. State plan, administered by law through the local Boards of 
Public Welfare. The law requires local Boards to aid aged persons, sixty-five and over, who are in need 
.nd who have resided in Massachusetts for one year prior to application. Need is determined by applying 
'udgetary standards set up by the State Department of Public Welfare. Some other requirements are 
lersonal property such as cash, savings, bonds, etc. not to exceed $500. Liens are placed on property if 
he applicant has an interest in such property.

During the past year, the law which most affected Old Age Assistance was the passage of Title XVIII of tb 
Social Security Act, or "Medicare". 

Medicare did relieve local Agencies of the greater part of the cost for hospital care. However, this was 
partly offset by increases in all medical costs. The staff checked every person on this category to make 
certain that they were enrolled in "Medicare" for both plans A and B. Another change during the year wa 
the increase of 3. 49% granted all recipients in their semi-monthly grants. 

The Federal Government reimburses local Boards $50. 00 per month for each case aided. The State pays 
two-thirds of the balance and the remainder is paid by the local community. 

This Board, in its budget request, does not include the Federal share, as this amount, by law, is set up 
in a separate account and can be used only by the Board of Public Welfare for the Old Age Assistance pro- 
gram. The Board, in its budget request, must raise the State and Town's share. The State's payments 
are returned directly to the Town's Excess and Deficiency account and is used by the Town. The assesso: 
however, anticipate this reimbursement based on the prior year's returns, and it does not adversely affec 
the tax rate. 

During the year 1966, 81 cases were aided under this program at the total cost of $69, 093. 91. 
AID TO FAMILIES WITH DEPENDENT CHILDREN 

Aid to Families with Dependent Children is another Fede rally- sponsored category administered by law 
through the local Boards of Public Welfare to aid children that are deprived of parental support through 
desertion, mutual or legal separation, divorce, incarceration, death, disability, or unemployment of the 
parent. 

During the past year all families in receipt of this type of aid received a 3. 49% cost of living increase in 
their semi-monthly grants. 

The Federal reimbursement on this program is $ZZ. 00 per person, and State reimbursement is one-third 
of the total expenditure. The local community pays the balance for the aid rendered. The Board does not 
include the Federal share in its budget request. The Town must raise the State share and the local share. 
The State's share is returned to the Town's Excess and Deficiency fund. There is no settlement required 
on this program. However, the children must have resided in the Commonwealth for one year prior to 
application. 

During 1966, members of this Agency appeared in various Courts, a total of 69 times and were successful 
in most instances against delinquent fathers in our efforts to obtain support orders for their families. 
Most of these support orders were for partial support. However, we did manage to close a few cases by 
securing court orders for full support under our budgetary standards. Receipts from this source amounte 
to$15, 726. 50 for 1966, an increase of 19. 8% over 1965. During 1966, 58 families were aided under this 
program with a total expenditure of $84, 784. 12. 

DISABILITY ASSISTANCE 

Disability Assistance is another Federally- sponsored State plan administered by law by the local Board of 
Public Welfare. It requires the local Board to aid persons who have been declared permanently and 
totally disabled by the Medical Review Team of the State Department of Public Welfare and who are in nee 
Need is determined by budgetary standards set by the Department of Public Welfare. The Federal reim- 
bursement for money expended in this category is $50. 00 a month per case, and the Town's share is 25% 
of the total cost each month. The balance is reimbursed by the State Department of Public Welfare. The 
same manner of financing is used as in Old Age Assistance and Aid to Families with Dependent Children. 
All recipients under this category also received an increase of 3. 49% in their semi-monthly grants. 

During the year 1966, 22 cases were aided on this category. Total expenditure for 1966 was $20, 791. 86.

VIEDICAL ASSISTANCE 

Effective September 1, 1966, Medical Assistance replaces the old category called Medical Assistance for 
he Aged. This new program is called Title XIX of the Social Security Act and is also known as "Medicaid", 
rhe following rules were adopted by the General Court for the administration of this program, in accordance 
with the provisions laid down by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. 

I. To provide medical care and services to all persons eligible for financial assistance under the 
provisions of the General Laws, Chapters 118, ll^-Aand 118-D. 

). To provide medical care and services to all residents of this State who would, if needy, be eli- 
gible for aid or assistance under Chapters 118, 118-A and 118-D and who meet the require- 
ments of financial eligibility under the Medical Assistance program. No durational residential 
requirements may be imposed. 

All children under twenty-one who could not qualify for public assistance but whose families 
cannot afford to pay for all or part of the cost of the medical care they need. (This includes 
families in which the parents are working, but do not earn enough to pay for medical expenses. ) 

Aedical expenses for all Federally-sponsored categories are now listed under Medical Assistance and our 
laims for reimbursement are filed separately. This should mean an overall increase in Federal and 
tate aid for 1967. The formula for reimbursement under this program is as follows: Federal share is 
0% of total expenditures. State's share is 2/3 of the balance, local share is 1/3 of the balance after the 
federal share is deducted. The local share actually is only 1 / 6 of the total. 

)uring the period September 1, 1966 through December 31, 1966 total expenditures amounted to $41, 336. 87. 
Fnder the old category of Medical Assistance for the Aged, from January 1, 1966 through August 31, 1966, 
:;e expended a total of $68, 781. 59. 119 cases were aided under this program. 

I'lENERAL RELIEF 

his program requires local Boards to meet the community's statutory obligation to relieve a person in 
eed. The decisions on who shall be aided and the amount given is left entirely to the local Board's dis- 
retion. Unlike the Federal programs where the final decision rests with the State through an appeal 
rocess, the local Board makes the final decision. The local Boards, through their policies and decisions 
ivariably attempt to reflect community thinking. 

he State Department reimburses local communities for 20% of the cost of General Relief. There is no 
ettlement requirement on this program. 

furing the year 1966, 42 cases were aided under this category with a total expenditure of $10, 354. 18. 
OMMENTS 

sveral attempts by the State Department of Public Welfare to take over the complete supervision, cost and 
dministration of all local welfare, failed in the General Court this past year. This failure by the State to 
like over is attributed mainly to the opposition of local Welfare Boards, Boards of Selectmen and the people 
iho live in the smaller communities. These people wish to retain the close contact they have with the local 
)oards of Public Welfare. They also wish to retain the many services given by local Agencies which do not 
ilways involve financial participation. 

ee would like at this time to cite a quote by Paul Benzaquin: "To give a man a handout without also giving 
rm a hand, can be as heartless as throwing a life-ring to a drowning victim, then abruptly leaving, the 
sach". 

ihis report was prepared for the local Board of Public Welfare by its Director of Public Assistance, 
alter F. Coleman.

PLANNING BOARD 



The Planning Board respectfully presents the following report for the year 1966. 

The year 1966 was again a busy year for the Wilmington Planning Board. The bi-monthly meetings were 
supplemented by alternate weekly meetings as "work sessions". The work load also called for meetings 
with other boards as well as extra meetings with professional consultants so that there were not too many 
evenings off for the members of the board. 

Immediately after election of officers for the year, it was agreed that the Secretary would handle all cor- 
respondence, contracts and finances as well as direct the Planning Board clerk. 

The Chairman arranged all public contacts, presided over all official meetings, handled contacts with 
other official boards, as well as keeping the board moving through the work present and future. Continue 
conferences with the other boards and Town officials should help the feeling of cooperation desired by the 
citizens. Separating the duties made for a smoother and more efficient Board. 

Board member Mrs. McKie represents the Town and the Planning Board on the Metropolitan Planning 
Council. 

Ninety (90) applications for sub-divisions or lot approval were acted on during the year. The largest 
industrial sub-division acted on is located between West and Woburn Streets as developed by Mr. Fred 
DiCenso. It is the first sub-division in Wilmington to utilize the sewer tie-in with Metropolitan Boston. 
This is a step forward and a look into the future of Wilmington when a large percentage of the town will 
use a municipally installed sewerage system. Another large industrial sub-division, at the present time 
in the preliminary stage, is located between Concord and Park Streets, parallel with Route 93, being de- 
veloped by Carl Realty. 

It should be noted that as these industrial sub-divisions advanced on paper and prints, our Town Enginee: 
Mr. Harding, gave invaluable service. He coordinated the Planning Board regulations with the engineer 
staffs for both sub-divisions. 

Residential sub-division development slowed down during the past year, but in 1967 should show an incre 
because of background work now in progress. 

A giant step forward in 1966 was the acceptance of parking regulations for industrial areas. These were 
prepared by a professional consultant, Mr. Samuel P. Snow, approved by the board and voted by the 
October 1st Special Town Meeting. 

Library location brought on a flurry of reactions and emotions during 1966. Building of a new library an 
the location of the building has been like a bouncing ball for some years now. The year 1966 may be re- 
corded as the year of selection of a site After a professional report and many meetings, the Walker 
School site was designated. This was the location proposed by the Planning Board in an earlier report. 

The zoning map was up-dated with definite dimensions applied to all areas so that interpretation and gues 
work will not rule in the future. 

For the first time in eleven years effective law enforcement came into being, thus creating for the to^«'n ; 
"new look" due to the removal of illegal signs commonly known as "road side litter". If we are to beaut 
our town and attract people and industry, it is hoped that we keep the "new look". If a law is too stringei 
the appropriate action is not to break or bend it, but rather to change it or wipe it off the books. 



52 



In the matter of law enforcement, the Board of Appeals should be singled out as a board doing an outstanding 
job of interpreting the law for intent and purpose. 

Another giant-sized piece of work to be completed soon is that of the new sub-division regulations. These 
new regulations should be made public at a hearing in the near future so that our residential sub-division 
growth will continue in a manner which will keep and make Wilmington an attractive town in which to reside. 
It must be kept in mind at all times that "eye appeal" is a major factor in our present society and will be a 
greater factor in the future. 

The final part of this report is probably the most important because it has to do with the future. What has 
happened makes interesting reading but in planning, tomorrow is the important area. For some time now, 
your Planning Board has been working hard to develop a continuing program of long range planning for the 
future of Wilmington. The businessmen of Wilmington have thought the future of the town so important that 
they gave of their finances in this cause. With their support and the funds appropriated by the Town, a 
preliminary or reconnaissance report on planning for Wilmington was prepared by Professor Charles W. 
Eliot (March 8, 1966) which reviewed previous planning reports and actions as well as the problems facing 
the town today, and recommended a program for planning. 

The Planning Board decided to adopt a program in three parts or stages: 

1. Continuous professional advice on short range problems and planning administration. 

2. Updating, revision and completion of the "Master Plan" and work on other elements of 
the "workable program" in order to qualify for further assistance and grants-in-aid from 
the Federal and State governments. 

3. Follow-up and continuation with "permanent professional planning assistance" as recom- 
mended by the businessmen and industries contributing to the program. 

For the first part of this program, the Board retained the professional consulting services of Mr. Samuel P. 
Snow until June 30, 1966 and now has contracted with Professor Eliot for advice and work on current 
^problems and projects in anticipation of approval of a "701 Project". 

i 

For the proposed "Master Plan" the Board wishes to take advantage of the substantial assistance available 
from the Federal Government under a "701 Project" and, with the assistance of its consultant, has pre- 
pared and filed an application for such a project. When approved by the U. S. Department of Housing and 
Jrban Development, possibly by mid-1967, the project will be carried out over two years and cost $30, 000. 
Of this sum, the Federal Government is expected to supply $20, 000 and toward the Town's share of $10, 000 
;he sum of $6, 000 has been forwarded to the Massachusetts Department of Commerce and Development 
vhere it is held in escrow until the Federal share is forthcoming. The Planning Board has agreed to pro- 
vide the balance of $4, 000 from such monies as the Town may appropriate or may be contributed by the 
ndustries of Wilmington. 

a( 

This program for planning will provide Wilmington with the data, tools, and objectives which are essential 
'O effective planning for the future of the Town and for the roles which Wilmington should take in the de- 
velopment of the region of which the Town is a part. The "General Plan" prepared in 1955-57 and the 
jeveral special studies undertaken over the past ten years will be brought up to date and new projections 
^ .nd proposals made for consideration by the appropriate public and private agencies. The "701 Project" 
includes proposed revision of zoning and sub-division regulations, a capital budget program and an 
;'official" map. 

la 

^jThe success of such a program of planning and of the major effort involved in the "701 Project" will 
equire the active participation of many Town officials, citizens, and business interests. We ask your 
upport in money, advice and time as we all work together for the future of Wilmington.

REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY 



The members of the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority take pleasure in presenting to the citizens of 
Wilmington its first annual progress report. 

Upon submission of Articles 33, 34 and 35, by the Chamber of Commerce, the Wilmington Redevelopmei 
Authority was established at the Annual Town Meeting in March 1966. 

On March 28, 1966, Mr. Robert Leahy, Mr. Joseph Sottile and Mr. Raymond McNamara were appointee' 
by the Board of Selectmen, and on April 5, the fourth member of the Authority, Mr. Rene LaRivee was 
also appointed by the Board of Selectmen. 

Here the Authority had to wait until a state member was appointed by Governor John Volpe. The appoint- 
ment of Mr. John R. Evans came on May 17, 1966. 

On June 6, the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority held its first meeting. This was an organizational 
meeting conducted by Mr. Edward Mullowney, Attorney for the Urban Redevelopment Division, Departm 
of Commerce. At this meeting an election of officers was held. The following officers were elected for 
the coming year: 

Rene J. LaRivee, Chairman 
John R. Evans, Vice Chairman 
Robert F. Leahy, Treasurer 

Raymond A. McNamara, Assistant Treasurer 
* Joseph J. Sottile, Acting Secretary 

Mr, Sottile is also authorized to act as temporary Executive Director. 

Because of the lack of suitable information from the Department of Commerce, it was decided at the 
June ZO meeting that Chairman LaRivee and Secretary Sottile would go into the Division of Urban Renew; 
the next day for clarification as to the proper steps to be taken with reference to the Eames Street 
Industrial Park. Having understood after the meeting with Mr. Edmund Mangini, Financial Officer of 
the Department of Commerce, Division of Urban Renewal, that time was of the essence, and a July 1 
deadline was set for the submission of the planning grant, it was very apparent to the members of the 
Authority that to meet the deadline it would be necessary to have the assistance of a capable consultant 
firm, and on June 23 the Wilirdngton Redevelopment Authority met with a representative of a consultant 
firm. Upon due consideration the members voted to retain the services of Candeub, Fleissig and 
Associates to prepare an application for a planning grant, to meet the July 1 deadline. The work was 
completed in less than the alloted time, delivered to the members of the Authority, who made no change 
and at this time submitted a preliminary copy of application for planning advance to the Division of Urba: 
Renewal, Department of Commerce and Development. 

On July 12, after visits to the Board of Selectmen and the Planning Board for their signatures, the |j 
Wilmington Redevelopment Authority submitted three executed copies for the undertaking of an Urban 
Renewal Project known as the Eames Street Industrial Park, 25% share amounting to $14, 500. The |) 
members of the Authority, meeting with the Board of Selectmen and the Town Manager, worked out a 
program where this 25% advance could be issued in town services only. On August 9 the Board of 
Selectmen informed the Department of Commerce and Development that this 25% share was as indicated ' 

( 



54 



i 



A.t this time the members of the Authority could only wait for the approval of the Department of Commerce 
and Development. Due to the backlog of applications for planning grants at the State level, it was not until 
November 4 that the signing of the grant was finally executed in Wilmington. Representing the Department 
oi Commerce and Development was Mr. Julian D. Steele, Deputy Commissioner, who signed for the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Signing for the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority were Chairman 
Rene J. LaRivee and temporary Executive Director Joseph J. Sottile. Signing for the Town of Wilmington 
A/ere Mr. Lloyd C. Bender, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, and members, Mrs. Wavie M. Drew, 
Vir. Paul H. Niles, and Mr. James R. Miceli. 

Dn November 7, the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority appointed Mr. John W. McCann as legal counsel. 
Tollowing this, at the meeting of November Zl, part-time secretary and part-time accountant were 
ippointed by the Authority. In the meantime, three consulting firms were interviewed by the members of 
he Authority and it was voted to retain the services of Candeub, Fleissig and Associates as the consultants 
luring the planning stage, contingent upon approval by the State Department of Commerce and Development. 

Dn December 27, 1966, after interviewing three engineering firms, the Wilmington Redevelopment 
Authority entered into contract with the firm of Anderson-Nichols and Company, Inc. for the purpose of 
)reliminary engineering plans and costs for utilities, streets, drainage and grading, plus test borings. 

\s this is written, the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority is happy to announce that the work is pro- 
gressing at a rapid pace. The boundaries and topographical surveys, acquisition, appraisals, and 
)reliminary title searches have all been completed. Test borings and engineering plans have been started 
i.nd we hope that this work will be completed within 60 days at the latest. 

iVe are also now interviewing firms interested in doing the marketability and re-use appraisal. 

)nce the engineering plans have been completed, the marketability and re-use appraisal will then be 

tarted. When all of this information is completed, it will then be compiled by our consulting firm for the i| 

iiurpose of preparation of Urban Renewal Plan, land acquisition and disposition report, project improve- I 

aent report, cost estimate and financing report, eligibility report, economic and fiscal impact report. J. 

n closing, the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority takes this opportunity to thank the various town 

fficials, boards and departments for their cooperation. 1

PUBLIC LIBRARY 



BOARD OF LIBRARY TRUSTEES 



The library plans developed during 1965 were not endorsed at the Annual Town Meeting held in March 196i 
and several members of the Library Trustees resigned. Chairman Ralph Kelmon, Miss Frankline Allen, 
and Dr. Ernest M. Wallent resigned and Raymond M. Fitzmaurice, Mrs. Evelyn M. Norton and Christiai 
Bachman were appointed by Town Manager Richard Henneberger to fill the unexpired terms. Mr. Raymo 
Fitzmaurice was subsequently elected chairman and served until his resignation in November. Christian 
Bachman was elected chairman at the December meeting. 

Mrs. Clara Chipman announced her plans to retire in January 1967, stating that she would be willing to 
continue until April 1, 1967 while a new librarian is being sought. Mrs. Esther Hall, part-time member 
the library staff and former town librarian transferred to a more favorable part-time position in the Nort 
Intermediate School Library. The Library Board has been actively seeking a qualified librarian to fill thi 
vacancy created by Mrs. Chipman's retirement. 

The new board undertook a complete review of the library program to date. In addition, the board accept 
invitations from the Selectmen to explore various solution's to the library building program. The conclus: 
and substance of the Snow report were carefully studied. Coordination meetings were held with other tow 
boards. No warrant articles were submitted for any special town meeting in 1966. 



As a result of the library program study, the board majority voted to explore the feasibility of building a 
new town library between the Walker School and the Police Station on Adelaide Street overlooking Rotary 
Park. 



The Trustees wish to thank the Women's Club and League of Women Voters for their efforts on behalf of 
the library.

There were 743 new registrations. Of the 7,510 registered, 6,027 are active borrowers. 

We received a gift of four books on conservation from the Wilmington Con servation Committee. Columb 
Record Company gave us twenty-four records. We were given a grant of $500 Federal Aid under Library 
Services Act, Title I, for reference books. This was administered by the Massachusetts Division of 
Library Extension and increased our reference collection considerably. 



Groups from schools visit the Library at intervals to learn about library services. Book deposits have 
been placed in five elementary schools, which releases some shelf space in the crowded children's sectio 
and allows pupils who live at some distance from the library to share in the collection. Adult books not i: 
constant use are stored. The School Committee has given permission for us to use one of the two unoccu 
rooms in the Center School for storage and work space.

le ever-popular Story Hour for pre-school children is held in two groups on alternate Wednesdays. 
!gistration is of necessity limited to 44 (2Z in each group) because of lack of space and because we cannot 
/e more than one morning a week to this activity. Our volunteers, Mrs. MacDonald and Mrs. McKie are 
.thful and inspired story-tellers. We owe them much. 

le Literature Committee of the Women's Club held its annual book sale for the benefit of the library in 
tober. Some of the proceeds is used to keep our window boxes attractively filled and provide favors for 
; Story Hour groups; the rest is held in a special fund by the Club for the use of the library at some future 
te. 

le reference section is taxed to the limit by commuting college students as well as school pupils. The 
;er-library loan department is instrumental in obtaining books (non-fiction not owned by this library) on 
m from the Eastern Regional Library, Lowell Sub- regional. 



w hours are as follows: Monday - Z:00 p. m. to 9:00 p. m. ; Tuesday through Friday

SARAH D. J. CARTER LECTURE FUND 



large enthusiastic audience greeted John Roberts on his return visit to Wilmington last March with his 
'st-moving color film "Norway and the Modern Vikings". Mr. Roberts, by his direct, precise delivery, 
ijain demonstrated how he has earned the well-deserved reputation as a thorough and talented film reporter. 

n Saturday evening, March 18, 1967, the committee plans to present Captain Irving Johnson of Yankee 
me with his most recent film, "The Yankee Sails the Nile". These programs are free of charge to the 
tople of Wilmington through the generosity of the late Sarah D. J. Carter. They are held in the High 
hool Auditorium at 8: 15 p. m. 

le committee was deeply saddened this year by the loss of one of its members. Guy E. Nichols passed 
vay in October. He was first appointed to the committee in 1916 and served as treasurer from 1946 to 
62. He carried out his duties in a forthright, efficient manner with his usual good humor. He will be 
eatly missed by all members of the committee who have served with him.

One of the original diesel driven triplex piston pumps installed at the Brown's Crossing 
Pumping Station in 1928. The pumps were started and the system put into operation on 
August Z6, 1928. This equipment is still in operation and in first class condition. 




The Shawsheen Avenue Pumping Station is one of the three new stations completed in 1966. 
These are equipped with deep well turbine-type electric pumps and gasoline stand-by units

study of the above listed statistics shows that the Town's consumption of water continues to increase 
Lthough the rate of increase for 1966 was lower than in prior years. 



estriction of the use of water was barely avoided during the second consecutive dry year. The emergency 
amp at the Town Park well was again of material assistance to the supply. Tests are still being continued 
) determine the best method of reducing the iron content to meet the standards of the State Department of 
ublic Health. 



he new pumping station at Shaw sheen Avenue went into operation in mid- summer. The other new stations 
: Aldrich Road and Butters Row were essentially complete and operable in late fall. The 2, 000, 000 
illons per day capacity of the three new stations brings the total daily pumping capacity to 6, 000, 000 
illons and the total number of pumping stations to seven. When the need arises, an eighth station of about 
000, 000 gallons per day can be added at the Salem Street land acquired in 1964. The Town is now 
5sured of an adequate source of water for some years.

the installation of sidewalks. Finance Committee - recommend disapproval. In order to continue the side- 
walk program in Wilmington at a level of $25,000.00 there is no need for the appropriation of any funds 
this year by Warrant Article. There presently exists a balance of $18, 59^-00 in the sidewalk account, plus 
$7,000.00 has been allocated in the Highway Department Budget under General Maintenance Salaries. Vote

hundred ($1,500.00) dollars for the purchase of a radar for the use of the Police Department. Finance

of this article claims that the cost of implementing this article for the balance of I966 would approximate 
$28,900.00. However, it should be pointed out that on a continuing basis, the price tag on this article is

is to make a finding and determination, as hereinabove provided, with information as to the nature and 
extent of the proposed use of the buildings, and such further information in respect to such elements and 
use as the Engineer may reasonably require. The Town Engineer, upon receiving such application for a find- 
ing and determination, shall proceed as provided in paragraph F of subsection of this By-Law under the

the application for such finding and determination, stating the reasons for such denial, which reasons shall 
) include a statement of the respect in which any. elements in and particular features of the proposal are 
ideemed to be inadequate to serve the building, structure or use of the premises. A finding and determination 
may be subject to such reasonable conditions and restrictions set forth therein as the Town Engineer may 
ideem necessary to insure that the proposed use, extension, erection or enlargement will serve the building, 
structure or use of the premises. In the event the Town Engineer makes such findings and determination, 
such use, extension, erection or enlargement shall be carried on only in conformity with any conditions 
land restrictions to which the Town Engineer shall have made his findings and determination subject, and only 
in essential conformity with the application and the site plan on the basis of which the findings and 
determination is made. The period within which final action shall be taken may be extended for a definite 
period by mutual consent of the Town Engineer and the applicant. In the event the Engineer determines that 
the site plan is inadequate to permit him to make a finding and determination, he may, in his discretion,

BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



To the People of Wilmington: 

Your Board of Selectmen is pleased to submit their annual report for the year 1967. 

The year I967 saw further expansion in our industrial growth. Smithcraft Corporation began 
construction of its new, modern facility abutting Route 93; Market Forge, Volkswagon Inc., 
Barbo' siCompugraphic Corporation and Dynamics Research were companies that constructed 
plants here or will, very soon. 

The Board of Selectmen once again found themselves in the position of having to hire a Town 
Manager. We selected Sterling C. Morris, a graduate of the University of Maine, who was 
currently serving in his sixth year as City Manager of St. Albans, Vermont. 

Greater liason between boards was created with the establishment of quarterly meetings be- 
tween committee and board chairmen. Morale was at an all time' high with all boards and com- 
mittees working together for a better Wilmington-. 

Construction of a new library on the old. St. Thomas Church site will start this spring, 
thanks to the thorough job rendered by an outstanding Board of Library Trustees. 

We feel that we, as a Board, should pay tribute to Mr. Harold E. Melzar who served with 
distinction, ability and integrity. This past year, while serving as temporary Town Manager, 
once again, he played a great part in steering the Town through troubled waters. 

Respectively submitted, 

James R. Miceli, Chairman

OFFICE OF THE 
TOWN MANAGER 



AREA CODE 617 
558-3311 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

It is my privilege to work for you in Wilmington, one of the fastest growing 
communities in the East, and to present this Annual Report which is the 
seventeenth under the Selectmen-Manager form of government. 

We have experienced a very successful year in our municipal enterprise, and by 
careful administration we were able to effect a savings in the form of money 
unexpended in many operating accounts, which will be available to use this year 
in the form of "free cash". Please understand that no Selectman or Finance Com- 
mittee member can halt the continuously rising cost of living, cost of services, 
or cost of consumer products. 

In order to control as much as possible the upward trend of tax cost, I have 
produced two companion documents to aid in the determination of the proper level 
of municipal spending. The first is a comprehensive budget, and the second is a 
suggested capital improvement program. I would be glad to discuss this material 
at any time with interested citizen or civic groups. 

The reports on the following pages are from the other members of our official 
family. They describe in words and figures the highlights of your municipal 
government during the year I967. 

The progress, which has been made during the time covered in this report, would 
not have been possible without the cooperation of all Town employees and without 
the leadership oT the Selectmen. To these people, to the citizen volunteers, 
and to our committees who have given of their time and energy, I express my deep 
appreciation. 

The community will benefit by your presence at Town Meeting. Our American heri- 
tage of freedom can only be preserved by active citizen participation in local 
af fa i rs . 



Respectfully submitted.

PLANNING BOARD 



The Planning Board respectfully presents the following report of its activities and progress for the year 19 

During the last three years, since the Wilmington Industries started contributing $8,000 per year, matched b; 

town funds, the Planning Board has set the ground worl< for continued modern planning and moved into a new 
p 1 ann i ng prog ram . 



'it 



Under the general guidance of our planning consultant, Professor Charles W. Eliot, planning work for Wilminc 
is proceeding on several fronts in anticipation of the expected approval of a "701" grant from the Federal 
Department of Housing and Urban Development. This worl< has been made possible by the appropriation voted al 
the annual Town Meeting and by the contribution of funds from Wilmington Industries. 

1. "701" Project . The Town has applied for a grant to cover two-thirds of the cost of a general plant 
program estimated to cost a total of $30,000., and has put up its $10,000. share, which is held in escrow b 
the State. The application was filed on December 15, I966 and soon after was forwarded to the U.S. Departmi 
of Housing and Urban Development, as a part of the project "Mass. P. IO6". Questions raised by the New Yor 
Office on some aspects of the project were answered in June and October, and the proposal was warmly endors 
by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council in July. At the end of the year. Federal approval of the project 
was expected momentarily. 

2. Current Planning Projects . The Planning Board has undertaken work on several projects with the he 
of Stephen Bartlett, who was placed on the payroll as professional planner. Mr. Bartlett worked full-time 
during the summer and then part-time from September through the end of the year. As a member of the planni 
staff, he proved to be a bright spot in our work. 

a. Survey of Existing Land Uses with records on a set of the Assessors Maps at 100 + 300 scale, which 
shows the residential, commercia' and industrial uses of all properties in I967, as well as the lands owned 
by the town and other information essential for further planning. The survey was made by checking the Asse 
cards and by field inspection via all travelable roads. Findings were checked against the records and date 
assembled by the Boston Regional Planning Project from air-surveys taken in I963. Work was begun in Januar 
by the Planning Consultant and continued during the summer by the Town Planner, Stephen Bartlett, and is nc 
being completed on a single map of the Town at 6OO scale with the assistance of Charles Thomas. 

b. Base Map . A new base map at 6OO scale is needed and towards its preparation, the Planning Board 
arranged through the Town Engineer for a "fly-over" on December 5th for aerial photography. The firm of Lc 
wood, Kessler and Bartlett, Engineers, has delivered a set of air p«ictures at 500 scale and is under contTc 
to deliver a further set of 100 scale photo- sc reens covering the Town.

law and the 



ways 



For the preparation of an Official Map for Wilmington, our Planning Consultant was authorized to enter int 
sub-contract with Mr. Charles E. Downe, who has prepared Official Maps for Worcester and other municipal it 
Under his direction, and with Mr. Bartlett serving as "coordinator", intensive research and many conferenc 
have produced a proposed Official Map, which we will offer for adoption at a I968 Town Meeting. In this w- 
the Town Manager, Town Engineer, Town Counsel and Fire Chief have been most helpful. (A further statement 
the proposed Official Map is included as an Appendix.) 

d. Soi 1 Survey . A contract for the U. S. Soil Conservation Service to make a soil survey of Wilmin 
has been negotiated and approved, under which maps will be prepared and soils investigated to point up the 
problems which may be encountered in development of areas with differing soil conditions. Particular atte 
will be given to the areas subject to perennial flooding and to records of the "depth of seasonal high wat 
table" to provide data essential to planning for septic tanks or sewers, and to planning for possible drai 



age and ditching operations.

e. Open Space Pol icy and Program . The Conservation Commission and the Planning Board drew up a list of 
■en areas which they recommended for acquisition by the Town under a Capital Improvement Program established 
the Town Manager. These projects were reviewed for us by our Consultant in relation to previous and current 
ins for open spaces--such as the I960 Recreation Plan and the current work of the Ipswich River Commission 

I Metropolitan Area Planning Council. Many of the areas are wetlands and some are intended for intensive 
ireationa! use. 

; map of areas subject to flooding or "wetlands", which the Conservation Commission had prepared by Whitman 
I Howard, has been useful in this connection. 

: Park Department is now a responsibility of the Board of Selectmen. It is hoped that the recommendations 
ithe Conservation Commission and Planning Board will be followed. 

: Proper locations of parks and playgrounds in any town has a direct effect on the property values and pro- 
I'.rity of a community. A town can be known as "drab" and decadent, or it can become known as "attractive" 
I prosperous. It is important that people will "want" to come to Wilmington. If this happens, we can then 
■ that we did a good job of "Planning". 

f. Small Lots and Tax Delinquent Properties . The Town Meeting approved our proposal to allow the Select- 
I to sell town-owned sub-standard lots to an abutter, so as to enlarge their present home-sites. It is hoped 
lit more people will now take advantage of this opportunity. The new by-law also helps to stop the com- 
rcializing of fifty-foot lots. 

■should be remembered that each fifty-foot lot built on, doubles the population prediction based on 100 foot, 
i foot, and 200 foot lots. It means simply and boldly that instead of one school at $1,000,000., we will 
;d two schools at $2,000,000., or it could mean a total of two extra schools. Then add the $500. per pupil 
• year for cost of education, plus all the other services for these extra homes on lots comparable to city 
;s. We came to the "country" for space; let's keep it that way'. 

=s year we have placed before the State Legislature, a proposal which would not hurt the Individual owning 
ii.ifty-foot lot, but we do propose to stop a builder from capitalizing on the land with fifty-foot frontage. 

! amazing fact now shows through, that there is only one builder who is using these fifty-foot lots to his 
i'antage. The other builders are conforming to the zoning lot sizes, to preserve the proper density of 
['elopment . 

i Planning Board and Conservation Commission have also been concerned over the sale of tax titles where the 
ids involved may be needed for public purposes such as school sites, well-fields, recreation, conservation, 
;. The survey of existing land uses should help in locating tax delinquent properties in relation to we- 
lds, small lots and present public holdings. Some of these properties, where the tax title has been fore- 
)sed should be considered for transfer to the Conservation Commission. 

g. Zon i nq . The zoning regulations under which we operate went into effect in 1955 and were labeled, 

-le most modern and effect i ve in the state''. Like a suit with good material, we have made changes since then 
1 make it fit better. The Special Town Meeting in 1967 approved further changes in accordance with our 
;ommendat ions . We have been working on possible amendments affecting frontages and lot sizes for commercial 
i Industrial districts. These amendments will be presented at the 1968 Annual Town Meeting. If passed, 
ity will up-date our by-law and bring it closer to conformance with modern, present-day standards. 

h. Subdivision Regulations . During the year, fifty-three applications for subdivision of lands were 
ceived and acted on. 

) of these applications were for sub-divisions, which are in wet areas. These will be acted on after the 
i"ing thaws provide further information. The Conservation Commission has helped us with recommendations on 
: areas in subdivision projects. 

J two major industrial sub-divisions are moving at a satisfactory pace. Mr. Fred DiCenso has a building, 
:iith-Craft, under construction. The "Barbo" sub-division between Concord Street and Park Street has completed 
freet construction so that building permits may be issued at any time. 

) large sub-divisions such as these could cause a work load of many hours ordinarily, but because of the 
Ficient manner in which the plans were drawn, the contacts with the Planning Board by the sub-dividers, the 
operation of the Town Engineer, and Town Counsel, and all other departments in the town, these two sub- 
i/isions were handled effortlessly. 



17 



The only problem we had was with a neighboring town, which caused us many anxious nights and endless hours 
negot i at i ons . 



i. Metropolitan Area Planning Council . During the year Mrs. McKie, our representative to the M.A.P.C 
has kept us informed about the activities of this group. The residents of Wilmington should be aware that 
M.A.P.C. is developing plans for the whole metropolitan area which directly affects all of the planning we 
do for the future of the Town. Our plans must be fitted into the larger picture, that of Metropolitan Plan 
This statement is made not to alarm people, but to alert them to the fact that we are a part of the area be 
planned from the nucleus of Boston. People reading this report should start getting very inquisitive about 
Wilmington fits into the Metropolitan plan. 

j. Private Assistance from Local Industries . I967 was the third year of support to Planning by the 
industries of Wilmington. Starting in I968, we are on "our own". In a letter to the Town Manager, Finance 
Committee, Board of Selectmen, and Planning Board at the outset of this contribution, it was stated: "The 
program outlined above is being offered to the Town for a period of not more than three (3) years with the 
expectation that within this time period the value of such a program would have been sufficiently demonstre 
to merit full financial support of the Town." 

The Town of Wilmington, and especially the Planning Board, wishes to express their gratitude for the intere 
and support of these contributing industries. 

Early in the year, the Planning Board and Conservation Commission began a coordinated effort, which contini 
all through the year. We feel it was a "pleasure doing business with them." 

We thank all of the Town Officials, Boards, and especially the Citizens for their help and cooperation duri 
the past year, and as we continue to plan for the future. 



APPENDIX 
AN OFFICIAL MAP FOR WILMINGTON 

The Wilmington Planning Board has prepared a proposed "Official Map of the Town of Wilmington" for conside 
ation and action by the voters at Town Meeting. The preparation of this Official Map was undertaken in c 
effort to clarify the status of all so-called streets within the community according to the statutory 
definition. The many "paper" streets in Wilmington present serious problems in the provision of road imp(i 
ments and public services, and in controlling development on sub-standard lots. 1 

"The Official Map of a town is one showing the public ways and parks therein as theretofore laid out and 
established by law and the private ways then existing and used in common by more than two owners." (G.L. 
Chapter k] , Section 8I-E) 

The adoption of an Official Map by the Town Meeting would establish officially, once and for all, the 
status of all so-called streets in the Town in order that the Town's responsibilities for the constructioi 
maintenance and up-keep of streets are clearly defined. Such adoption would eliminate numerous "paper" 
streets and provide a sound base on which to build the future street and sub-division pattern in the Town 

Under the provisions of G.L. Chapter 41, lots and areas which had frontage on streets shown on the offici 
map could be developed and construction take place, simply by the issuance of a building permit through t 
usual procedures. All new streets which might be proposed for development with new frontage for new lots j 
would then be processed through the sub-division control procedure administered by the Planning Board. N' 
sub-division streets approved by the Board would automatically become Official Map streets as private str 
Upon acceptance by the Town Meeting these streets would then become public streets, and the Town would 
assume responsibility for their maintenance. 

For the preparation of the proposed Official Map, the Planning Board used the services of*its Planning 
Consultant, Charles W. Eliot and those of Consultant Charles E. Downe, who had prepared Official Maps for 
Worcester and other municipalities. The Town Planner, Mr. Bartlett, served as "Coordinator", and confer- i 
ences with the Town Manager, Town Engineer, Town Counsel, and Fire Chief were most helpful. 

18 



1 



he procedures to prepare the map required a series of interpretations of the phrases in the law: 



For " the pub 1 i c ways ... as theretofore laid out and established by law". - Starting with the list of 
'Accepted" streets in the I966 Town Report, all of the streets listed were checked against all records and 
:he list adjusted and clarified with the help of the Town Counsel, Town Manager and Town Engineer. 

!. For "the private ways then existing and used in common by more than two owners", interpretation was 
■squired as to the meaning of "existing and used". It was decided to define the term "existing" to mean 
ihysically existing as a passable way. Where there were questions as to the extent of passability, the 
jpinion of the Fire Chief as to access by a piece of fire apparatus was the deciding factor. A number of 
special problems had to be resolved concerning the lengths of ways which were "passable". 

n order to protect the community against haphazard development and public expense, Chapter 41 of the 
leneral Laws provides that: 

No public water supply or sewer or other municipal utility or improvement shall be constructed in any 
lub 1 i c or private way elsewhere than in a sub-division approved under the Subdivision Control Law, unless 
iuch way has been placed on or made part of an Official Map. 

No building permit for the erection of any building may be issued unless a way giving access to the lot 
pon which the proposed building is to stand is in a subdivision approved under the Subdivision Control Law 
r is on the Official Map. (The right of appeal to the Board of Appeals in the case of a building permit 
iS provided.) 

No person shall open a way for public use except as provided in the Subdivision Control Law unless the 
fay is shown on the Official Map. 

o define the word "used", two interpretations were offered and records were made of the effect of each 
nterpretat ion on the list of private ways to be shown on the Official Map. One interpretation was that 
used" means "having the right to use" either as a physical access, or for frontage requirements to qualify 
or a building permit, whether or not this right were actually exercised. A second interpretation, and the 
ne adopted by the Planning Board, defines "used" as meaning, physically used as an access to an established 
se. The Town Counsel, although unable to cite any precedent for such an interpretation, states that he be- 
ieved such a position was tenable and defensible. This second interpretation eliminates a larger number 
f paper streets than the first interpretation. Again, of course, there were a number of special problems 
hich required inspection and conferences for their resolution. 

report by Mr. Downe to the Planning Board reviews these procedures and problems in detail, and presents 
ards and maps showing the classification and lengths of all the public and private ways in Wilmington. The 
roposed "Official Map of the Town of Wilmington" has been prepared from this record.

TOWN ENGINEER 



The reauests for engineering services continued to increase during the year, and many reauests could not be 
fulfilled due to lack of qualified personnel and insufficient time. The Town Engineer was assisted by one 
Northeastern University Civil Engineering student from January 1 to June 11, and with two students from 
June 12 to December 10, and only one student from December 11 to December 31- These students are emploj 
under the co-operative plan and change every three or six months. With this continual change of student 
employees quarterly, it is difficult to maintain continuing projects without constant supervision as the 
capabilities of the students change as a senior student may be replaced by a freshman student. 

Field Surveys, calculations, plans and estimates were prepared for many small projects both approved and 
proposed including: lay-out of Ferguson Road for construction under the Betterment Act; lay-out of Jere Roa 
and Allen Place for proposed acceptance and construction under the Betterment Act; lay-out for construct ion^ 
of tennis courts at the Boutwel 1 and North Intermediate Schools; preliminary survey of the Lowell Street - 
Woburn Street intersection; topography for Library site; topographic detail and estimates for proposed pro- 
jects of the Public Buildings Department; numerous individual drainage problems; detailed survey of partial-, 
completion of construction of ways and appurtenances on alt existing sub-divisions. 

The Town Engineer met with the Planning Board at all of its regular and special meetings as an engineering 
advisor and acts as its agent in the inspection of construction of streets, utilities and storm drainage ir 
all approved sub-divisions. During the year construction of streets, etc., in the following sub-divisions 
was completed, with some exceptions: Wilmington Industrial Park, off Concord Street and Route 93, Fordham 
Road, about ^,000 feet long and 60 feet wide serving about 1 80 acres of Industrial Zoned land; Barrows Part 
off Woburn Street, Chapman Avenue and Sheridan Road total about 2,900 feet long and 50 feet wide, serving 
residential lots; Pine Tree Park, off Everett Avenue, Wicks Circle, 535 feet long and 50 feet wide, servincj 
9 residential lots. Partially completed residential sub-divisions, approved prior to this year with con- 
struction continuing during the year were: Hathaway Acres Extension I £- II (Hathaway Road, Draper Drive, 
Evans Drive and Buzzell Drive); Esquire Estates Extension (Charlotte Road); Dell Manor (Dell Drive); Alder 
wood Estates (Kenwood Avenue, Redwood Terrace and Englewood Drive); DeCarolis Estates (Marcia Road); Fergu 
(Woodland Road and Hanson Road). Partially completed Industrial sub-division was Route 93 Northern Indust 
Park, Industrial Way connecting Woburn Street and West Street and Progress Way with a total of about 4,600 
feet in length and 60 feet wide. j 

Status reports of most of the uncompleted sub-divisions were prepared, and recommendations were made to mo j 
some of these. Although inspection of construction of these sub-divisions was performed by the Town Engin 
sufficient time and personnel do not permit the complete inspection required. It is most important that t 
inspection be complete because all of the construction eventually becomes the responsibility of the Town t 
ma i nta i n .

HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 



in the past all regular routine work was completed before any regular highway maintenance and construction 
Dgram began, such as street patching, cleaning catch basins, culverts, erection of street and traffic signs, 
<Tie brush cutting, and cutting shoulders to widen streets. All streets were swept at least once, and some 
re swept twice with our power sweeper. Street signs are becoming a problem to maintain, as vandals enjoy 
stroying them. 

Ski Tow is not in operation due to vandalism. The truck was checked the second week in December and all 
well. I sent the mechanic to install a new battery, check the oil and start the engine, and he discovered 
2 lock and chain on the hood of the truck was broken and part of the engine and radiator was smashed. 

ainaqe - Several of our drainage problems have been eliminated, but many still exist. More will be elimin- 
;d in 1968. 

dewalk Programs - The progress in sidewalk construction has been very slow. The only one under construction 
on Burlington Avenue. It should be completed in 1968, after the finished surface on the Street has been 
id. The Highway Department completed a three week clean-up campa i gn throuc|hout the Town. One man worked 
th the Tree Department for seven months. Work performed for Superintendent of Public Buildings. Excavated 
fck gravel and laid a three-inch binder course of hot top on the tennis court at North Intermediate School, 
iiished layer to be laid in I968. Excavated and back graveled tennis court at Boutwell Street School. Will 
completed in I968. Constructed pedway at Whitefield School. Stock-piled loam at the High School. 

3pter 90 Maintenance - $4,995-00 spent to hot top Church Street in front of High School, and 3500 feet on 
iem Street. 



apter 90 Construction - Burlington Avenue: The Highway Department undertook the job of constructing 

lington Avenue. It turned out to be a real hard project because of the drainage. We were unable to obtain 
drainage release on Swain Road. This caused a big change in plans. All drainage had to be brought down 
)m Beech Street to Dell Drive to an old existing drainage easement. 1,200 feet of drainage was laid through 
Ige. Trenches were from 5 to 12 feet deep. All blasted ledge had to be hauled away, and the trenches back 
led with gravel. Ledge also had to be blasted and hauled away to widen the street and make room for the 
lewalk. Due to the heavy work load on the Telephone Company, they were slow moving the poles, but I must 
lit they did a fine job. I was in hopes of getting the finish layer of hot top down, but the cold weather 
le me decide against it. The contract calls for Boutwell Street as the end of the project. This must be 
ie by the Highway Department in I968... about 6OO feet of drainage, some gravel and binder course of hot 

When this is done the finish layer of hot top will be laid the entire length of the job, and then the 
lewalk will be constructed and finished. I strongly recommend that all future Chapter 90 Construction work 
let out on contract because of our other work. It gives the department all they can handle properly. 

ipter 81 Maintenance - In conjunction with part of my expense account. All streets cleared of brush either 
cutting or spraying. All catch basins and culverts cleaned for the second time. Others were cleaned 
lin in November and December. Many streets swept for the second time. Some shoulders cut back and dirt

iiw and Ice - Snow and ice removal still remains a major and a very expensive problem. The price of sand 

I salt has increased. I have increased the sand and salt mixture to about 30% salt, and I have used straight 

t on Lowell Street, Salem Street, Middlesex Avenue, Church Street and Burlington Avenue, before sanding. 

some taxpayers it may seem like a waste of money, but the results have proven otherwise. It gives the 
ihway employees a feeling of satisfaction when they meet the early worker on his way to work encountering 

tie if any hazardous driving. The taxpayers must also bear in mind that the Highway Department has to 
ian all the school parking areas, and the hired loaders cost $22.50 per hour. To clean the snow in the 

23 



Snow and Ice - (continued) 

business areas, I have to hire at least 6 ten wheel trucks at $11.00 per hour end k loaders at $22.50 per 
hour, and then get permission from St. Thomas Church to dump it at the end of their parking lot, or in the 
field, which takes one large loader to keep it pushed back. 

Equ i pment - My mechanics, foreman and I have checked over the equipment very thoroughly and sincerely con- 
clude we must trade 3 trucks and the grader. The 3 trucks have just about had it, but have some trade-in 
value. I haven't any idea what condition they will be in after this winter if it keeps on going the way it 
has started. The grader is 17 years old. A new grader is worth $29,000. The trade-in value of my present 
grader is $2,900. I recommend the Town not trade it, as it is worth more to the Department as a piece of 
snowplowing equipment. If used for snow plowing only, it will last several more years. 



In closing I am taking this opportunity to thank all the various departments for their help, especially in 
the winter, and Mr. Sargent of the Water Department for loaning me Charles Duffy, a very capable welder, 
to repair our snow equipment at a very large saving. Breakdowns are frequent, but a good welder on the jot 
keeps them going. Also I wish to thank the Town Manager and the Selectmen for their cooperation and under- 
standing of our problems in dealing with the public. 




Wilmington Public Library 




PUBLIC LIBRARY 



irly in I967, several new appointments were made to the Board of Library Trustees by the Temporary Town 
imager, Mr. Harold E. Melzar. Mr. Albert J. Blackburn Jr., Mr. Carlo E. Gubellini and Mr. Cornelius F. Joyce 
'.re appointed to the Board to serve with Mrs. Neilson, Mrs. Norton and Mr. Buzzell. Officers were elected 
I March as follows: Chairman, Carlo E. Gubellini, Secretary, Albert J. Blackburn Jr. 

I express our sincere thanks to Mrs. Clara Chipman who retired on April 1, I967 after serving many years as 
Mn Librarian. We welcome Mr. James Connors who joined the staff as Librarian on April 1, 1967- 

le Library Trustees set as their objective for 19^7 an intensive effort to bring closer to reality a new 
'brary facility for the Town. As a result, the year was one of several challenges. We are pleased that the 
il lowing progress has been made: 

1. The appointment of a new town librarian. 

2. A successful special town meeting was held on July 31, 1967 at which the voters approved the acquisi- 
tion of additional land for the library site and provided the funds for preliminary plans and con- 
sultants' services in connection with a new library building. 

3. The hiring of the architectural services of the firm of Korslund, LeNormand and Ouann Inc. and a 
library consultant, Mr. Joseph Schmuch. 

k. A successful special town meeting on November 20, 19^7 at which the voters showed their approval of 
the library plans proposed by the Trustees by authorizing the necessary funds to erect a new library 
building. 

; are grateful to the several town organizations and groups for their support during the year. We are also 
ipreciative of the efforts of the library staff in providing an ever- i ncreas i ng volume of service under in- 
■easingly difficult physical conditions at the current library building. 

:' is anticipated that the library will occupy new quarters early in 1969 at the latest. In the meanwhile, 
lime temporary solution to the existing space problem will be sought, and preparation for the library move 
til be initiated during the coming year. 



LIBRARIAN' S REPORT 



Books added to library 2,685 
Records added 20 
Books circulated 80,028/ 
Periodicals circulated SSkfo^j^^i^ 
Records circulated 480 

Fines collected $1,^+45.78 



: 1967 there was an increased emphasis on use of other library facilities. There was a decided increase in 
nrrowing from the materials available at North Reading, Lowell, and Boston. 

; was necessary to store in other Town facilities much useful material. The additions to the library 
2cessitated a selective weeding of present materials. 

lie Wednesday story hour for pre-schoolers increased in its already widespread popularity. To service a greater 
umber of children the story hours were divided into three sections of approximately 20 children each. These 
cory hours were ably supervised by Mrs. MacDonald, Mrs. McKie, and Mrs. Passmore. 

; is felt by the present library staff that our present circulation figures represent a maximum under present 
Dnditions. It is hoped that in I968 possible internal expansion may permit increased services to our patrons.

BOARD OF REGISTRARS 



In accordance with Section 1, Chapter 3, of the Town By-Laws, meetings of the Board of Registrars are held or 
the second Monday of each month for the registration of voters and the conduct of business. Under Chapter 6j: 
of the Acts of 1958, this meeting is open to the public and the press, and it is so posted in the Town Hall. 

One all-day registration was held as posted. The Board held six extra meetings for the purpose of certifyinf 
names on nomination papers and warrant articles. 

Women married prior to January 1 must re-register under their marriage name. Naturalized citizens must have 
their naturalization papers with them when registering. ■ 

In order to keep the voting list as up-to-date as possible, the Board annually compares the voting list with 
the yearly census. If a voter's name does not appear in the census, it is subject to removal from the votinc 
reg i s te r . 

New residents are requested to notify the Board of Registrars of the date which they take residence in the 
town. Any change of address within the town during the year should be brought to the attention of the board 
so that your name will not be removed from the voting list inadvertently.

RECREATION COMMISSION 



Under the guidance and direction of Mr. Sterling Morris, Town Manager, and the Chairman of the Commission, 
Mr. George Dyas, the Commission has undergone a reorgan i zat ional period. The purpose of this movement was 
for efficiency, better understanding, clearer lines of communication and planning. The first step was the 
establishment of a regular monthly meeting to be held in the town hall on the first Tuesday evening of each 
month. Other considerations include long range plans for facilities and programs with townspeople en- 
couraged to participate. 

During the past year an additional lifeguard was added to the beach program, a program was included at the 
West Intermediate School area, and for the first time a girls' program of basketball was started at the high 
school on Saturdays. 

Future plans now under discussion include consideration of additional ice skating areas, a boys' summer base 
ball league, improvements at the town beach, and erection of a lighting system for Softball, flag football, 
pop-warner football, and ice skating. 

We are grateful to Mr. Morris, and to the Highway and Maintenance Departments for their assistance and co- 
operation during the past year.

1967 has been a very successful year for the Building inspector's Office. 



A continuing effort is being made to enforce the Zoning By-Laws and, while a large number of violations have 
been eliminated, 1 do not intend to relax my efforts in this area. 

The above figures show a substantial increase in industrial construction during I967, plus a large increase 
in alterations to existing dwellings. 

I wish to express my appreciation to all departments and committees for the cooperation and assistance 
received during the year.

he statistics show that the consumption of water for the year I967 increased at a greater rate than in the 
ear I966, a dry year, due principally to greater consumption by industry. 

n engineer's study made during the year, indicates that the water mains in Andover and Ballardvale streets 
re inadequate to properly supply the industrially-zoned areas in North Wilmington. The development of these 
reas will require the installation of much larger mains. Other areas of the town will also require larger 
ai ns . 

3mmissioner Ralph M. Kelmon resigned in February, 1968, and Vincent R. McLain was appointed his successor.

General work was carried on with the mowing of grass as the dominating factor. I967 was an exceptional yea 
for lawns. A planting of trees and shrubs was set out in the new section. An evergreen planting was put ii| 
Section C. Five hundred yards of loam were purchased to be used for grading. The cemetery pit has run out 
therefore, the Town will have to purchase fill for grading. 

A large amount of rough fill was hauled in by the Highway Department from Chapter 90 Maintenance. The High 
way Department sweeper assisted in cleaning the sand from the cemetery avenues. An International cub tract' 
was pu rchased th i s year. A backhoe was installed on our Bk\k Tractor. This has modernized our work in the 
Cemetery. We have also assisted other Departments with the equipment. 

The inside of the office building was painted by the town maintenance painter. An electric hot water heate 
has been installed. The maintenance crew installed a ceiling in the new garage. It has been insulated. 
Telephone and electric services were added. Due to fire insurance rules two fire extinguishers were put in 
each garage. 

The Parks, the Common and the Town Beach were maintained as usual. Eaton Park, at the intersection of Glen 
Road and Main Street, was added to our list for maintenance. Some clay was added to the base lines of the 
Softball Diamond at the Town Park and more is to be added in I968. The flag poles at Rogers and Reagan Par 
were repaired and painted with the use of the Fire Department ladder truck. The life lines and life guard 
chairs at the beach were painted. The beach area was raked and dragged with a chain link mat. Weekly clea 
up was carried on throughout the season. Two hundred and sixty tons of sand were hauled and spread in the 
water. We were called to assist the Little League in mowing and cleaning the Park for the All-Star Games. 

The cooperation and assistance from Town Officials and various Town Departments has been appreciated.

TREE DEPARTMENT 



iring the year 1967, the Tree Department carried on its usual work of tree removal, trimming low limbs, 
OTOving broken limbs, and removing broken tree tops. These trees are diseased or dead; therefore, they are 
flken to the Town tree dump and burned to prevent further infestation of other trees. Our shade tree spray- 
^g program is on the increase each year. This is due to the new homes and developments being constructed in 
ir town. We continued to trim the trees surrounding the fire alarm system which has reduced short circuits 
iusing false alarms. Our tree feeding program was continued this year. Twenty trees were treated. Our 
iristmas tree on the Town Common was decorated by this department under the direct supervision of the Town 
irden. This tree is called the Herbert C. Barrows Christmas Tree. One hundred twenty-five Norway trees 
^re planted on different streets as requested. Eighteen trees were removed on Burlington Avenue for street 
dening, also fifteen trees on Ferguson Road for the same purpose. Trees were cut in back of the High 
hool to clear wires to the ballfield for the lights. The Tree Department plowed snow with the Highway Dept. 
cut and trimmed trees in the Cemetery and trimmed limbs on trees to the Cemetery building for light wires, 
also did a few jobs for the School Maintenance Department. 



m Leaf Beetle and Dutch Elm Disease : 

le elm leaf beetle spraying program starts in April and continues into August. This year 43 elms were lost 
irough the disease. Sixty samples were sent to Amherst State College to be tested. Reports came back with 
/enty-nine being infected. At various times we have been helped by the State. Tree Department and the 
Imington Highway Department in removal and burning of these trees. The State furnished men, a truck, and 
luipment for two weeks at no cost to the Town. To counteract the loss of our elms, our tree planting pro- 
•am was put into operation. This program has been in effect for five years. This year, as in other years, 
! have planted over one hundred maple trees in various sections of the town. Unsightly roadside stumps no 
)nger plague the Town, thanks to a tree stumping machine rented by the town. Stumps are ground down below 
le earth level, the hole is then filled with gravel and loam. Forty-five stumps were removed. 



)th Department : 

1 shade trees were sprayed with 6% D.D.T. for gypsy moth, tent caterpillar, fall web worms, aphids, pine 
loot moth, oak blights, maple leaf spot and dieback. All front lawns were sprayed with 6% D.D.T. for 
ipanese beetle milky disease. In various areas thoughout the town we encountered gypsy moth and tent 
iterpillar nests. We sprayed them with D.D.T. and malthion. 

lison Ivy : 

ush killer was sprayed on stone walls, streets, and around homes where poison ivy was found. The roadside 
IS sprayed, with special attention being given to street corners, where the motorist's view was obstructed 
■eating an accident hazard. 



>squ i toes : 

)mes, swamps, and bog areas were sprayed again this year which is the usual practice of this department. 
! also used "Toss It's". These are little gelatin cylinders which dissolve in the water releasing chemi- 
ils which kill the larvae of the mosquitoes. We also sprayed the swamps with D.D.T. and malthion. 

own Forest : 

;ie town forest has been cleared of all underbrush. Dead trees have been removed, and dangerous limbs have 
;!en cut. The road around the forest has been cleared and trimmed, and sprayed regularly throughout the 
iimmer months. All the old cars and tin cans around the canal banks were cleared away.

MAINTENANCE OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS 



The department regrets to report the death of Lester H. Smith, the oldest in service of our building 
custodians, who was well known as the capable senior custodian of Wilmington High School. 

The two tennis courts voted at the last Annual Town Meeting could not be totally completed before the ad- 
verse winter weather set in. The North Intermediate is rough paved and can be used for skating, but the 
frost was in the ground before the Boutwel 1 could be paved. Both courts will be finished early in the 
Spring and will be used for tennis In the summer of 1968. Two more new tennis court - ice skating areas 
are being requested in the I968 budget, to be located at Glen Road School, and the Wildwood Street School. 
Total cost estimate is $2^,000 dollars for both. 

Throughout the year the department has carried on the continuous work of cleaning, painting, and repairing 
the plant facilities of the various town buildings and grounds. The new hot water piping and boiler systet 
for the cafeteria of the Boutwel 1 School was Installed by the department In the summer of 1967- The light' 
i ng and ceiling were installed at the new Cemetery building by the department and wiring contractor. 

Our vandalism problem has increased in the year of 1967- A good third of the department's time Is spent ; 
on repairing facilities (both inside and outside the bu i 1 d I ngs ) de 1 I berate 1 y des t royed by vandals. This 
detracts from our ability to practice good preventative maintenance on the building equipment and struc- : 
tures. Unfortunately this Is not just a local problem but a national one. 

In conclusion, on behalf of the department I would like to thank the various employees and officials for ' 
the cooperation extended In the year 1967- ' 



VETERANS' AGENT 



The Wilmington Veterans' Agent respectfully submits his annual report for the year I967. Paul A. Farrell, , 
Veterans' Agent, and Mrs. R. M. Burns, Secretary. ^ 

Veterans' Services is governed by the General Laws of Massachusetts, Chapter 115j with strict compliance to 
this chapter, the rules and policies of which govern the disbursement of aid. 

Benefits are for the needy veteran and his immediate family who have been subjected to unforeseen needs. 
Final approval of benefits comes from the Commissioner of Veterans' Services, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The appropriation for I967 was $70,000.00 as voted at the Annual Town Meeting. 

Total expended for aid to veterans and their families was $33,280.14. In November $30,000.00 was transferr 
to the Welfare account as a result of a vote at Special Town Meeting. Total reimbursements from settled 
assignments on accident cases amounted to $1,55^.32. Of this amount, because 50% of expenses of this depar 
ment is shared by the Commonwealth and 50% is shared by the town, the town's share Is $777.l6. The total 
amount has been turned over to the Town Treasurer, and the Commonwealth has been notified so adjustment of 
any monies can be made before State reimbursements to the Town. 

Total benefits paid $33,280.14 
Transferred to Welfare 30,000.00 
Total Expended 63,280. 14

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 



This constitutes the fourth annual report of the Conservation Commission. We are charged with the responsi- 
'»! 1 i ty of preserving, maintaining, and improving the Town's natural resources. The following was accomplished 
Juring the past year: 

Under the sponsorship of the Commission, the Massachusetts Audubon Society presented a film entitled 
['Our Wildlife Heritage". This film was shown to assembled Girl and Boy Scouts. A lively question and 
mswer period followed. 

I. The Commission once again sponsored two boys from Wilmington to attend the Massachusetts Junior Cbnser- 
?ation Camp. The camp provided professional instruction on water and soil conservation, forestry and wild- 
life management, use of firearms, fishing, and small boat handling. The boys were chosen from a number that 
nad applied to the Commission, and are available to speak to any group which is interested in these aspects 
()f conservation. 

i. Conservation Commission members attended hearings on the Inlands Wetlands Bill, Ipswich River class- 
ffication, and water pollution. Letters were written to our state representatives informing them of our 
aosition on these matters. Delegations also met at the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions 
spring conference and annual fall meetings, and convened jointly with the Tewksbury Conservation Commission. 

I. Preliminary plans for the improvement of the. Town Park were drafted. These plans were based on a survey 
nade by the Massachusetts Department of Natural Resources for the Conservation Commission. 

i. Several joint meetings were held with the Planning Board to discuss items of mutual concern such as 
oroposed developments and land use planning (Master Plan). 

j. As part of the town beautif ication program, the Commission purchased six Crimson King Maples which were 
l>lanted in the fall at the West Intermediate and North Intermediate Schools. 

/. Additionally, the Commission attended Hatch Act hearings conducted by the Selectmen, conducted invest- 
igations on Hatch Act complaints, and met with developers. 

ffhe Commission is in the process of cataloging open spaces in Wilmington for the purpose of applying for 
litate and federal funds to acquire further lands for conservation purposes. The public is invited to take 
advantage of the lands already under the care and protection of the Conservation Commission.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



The School Committee of the Town of Wilmington herewith presents its report for the year I967. The member- 
ship of the Committee was as follows: 

Arnold F. Lanni, Chairman 
Robert E. Tadgell, Vice Chairman 
Diana C. Imbimbo, Secretary

During the past year, the most significant development in the growth of the Wilmington Public Schools was 
the Survey of the Wilmington School District, conducted April 3. ^1 5. and 6, 1967. by the Division of 
Curriculum and Instruction, Bureau of Elementary and Secondary Education, State Department of Education. 
In the pages that follow, the salient recommendations of the survey will be outlined with specific refer- 
ence to: (1) the long range school building program as seen by the School Committee in its report, and 
(2) the curriculum and staff implications of the survey as seen by the Superintendent of Schools in his 
report . 

THE LONG RANGE SCHOOL BUILDING PROGRAM 

In the State Department Survey, careful consideration was given to the facilities needed in Wilmington in 
terms of population growth and to the grade organization currently in use. 

According to the Survey Team, the Wilmington Public Schools have been experiencing a rapid increase of 
student population (although fortunately for the town, not as rapid an increase as surrounding communities, 
nor the increase projected in the "Report of School and Recreation Facilities Studies and Capital Budget--"). 

*This report was prepared for the Wilmington Planning Board in \SGO by the Economic Development 
Association of Boston. 

The grade organization as adopted by the School Committee is the 5"3-^-pattern, I.e., five years of 
elementary education, grade one through five; three years of intermediate education, grade six, seven, and 
eight; and four years of high school education, grades nine through twelve. It is a pattern that is well 
received by educators and lay people alike for its educational and fiscal soundness, and it is the one the 
Committee is striving to implement in the long range school building program. The pattern is shown graphi- 
cally in Chart A, indicating the existing grade organization of the elementary schools, the intermediate 
schools, and the high school in the town, as well as the dates of construction.

th these two factors in mind, plus the mandate by the State Board of Education that kindergartens be a 
iDrmal part of the grade organization by 1973 and the need to replace some of the older schools, the Survey 
sam formulated the following long range building program for consideration by the School Committee and 
itizens of Wilmington.

In essence, the Survey Team recommended: (a) additions to the Woburn Street School and the Wildwood School, 
(b) two, twenty-four room elementary schools, and (c) a new 1600 pupil high school (expandable to 2,000). 
They also suggested that the West, Walker, Center, Whitefield, and Rogers Schools be replaced. Further that 
the Swain School could be utilized by (a) undertaking internal modification, and (b) building an addition 
to the f ac I 1 i ty . 

The key part of this recommended building program is the construction of a new high school and converting 
[the existing school to a combination el ementary- i ntermed i ate school. This specific recommendation, of 
icourse, has far reaching educational and fiscal implications for the town. Because of this, the School 
Committee is planning to hire the services of a reputable school building consulting firm to conduct a 
feasibility study early in I968 relative to the recommendation, and no decision relative to this recom- 
Tiendation will be made by the School Committee until this, and if necessary, other studies have been made. 
Dnly in this way can the best interests of the town be served. In the meantime, however, the Committee has 
initiated action in regard to two schools. The addition to the Woburn Street School was approved at a special 
town meeting held January 16, 1967; work started in June, I967, and occupancy is expected by the middle of 
January, I968. The proposed Shawsheen Avenue Elementary School of 26 rooms was defeated at a special town 
neeting in November. Affirmative action is expected on this school early in I968. 

iln other matters involving the operation of the public schools, the year 1967 again found the Committee 
(deeply involved in: (1) collective bargaining with teachers, nurses, clerks, and cafeteria personnel on 
Salaries and conditions of employment; (2) teacher turnover, selection, and replacement; and (3) curriculum 
development and improvement. 

'he Committee for the second successive year revised salary schedules in order to remain competitive with 
:he surrounding towns in the search to attract and hold competent personnel. 

n the area of teacher turnover and replacement, the Committee elected sixty-three teachers to fill staff 
,'acancies, forty for replacement, and twenty-three for new positions because of population growth, and the 

continuing efforts on the part of the Committee to make some improvements in the total school program each 

'ear. Resignations were received from forty teachers during the year for the following reasons: 15 per- 
|i;onal and family reasons, 7 maternity, 3 counselled out, 7 other teaching positions, 3 retirement and 5 

larr i ages . 

[hree staff members retired during the year. They were Rose M. Kennedy, Building Principal and Grade three 
j'eacher at the Swain School; Mary L. Donahue, Teacher of Grade three at the Wildwood School; and Rhea Perry, 

'eacher of Grade five at the Woburn Street School. The School Committee is grateful for their devotion and 

or their long and distinguished service to the public schools. 

he end of the year found the staff, exclusive of custodians, numbering 237, more than double what it was 
en years ago. 

he schools were in session 1 80 days, beginning September 7, '966, and ending June 21, 1967- 
he Committee held 21 regular meetings and 27 special meetings during the year. 

o conclude, the Committee extends its sincere thanks to the town departments and to the citizens for their 
looperation and help during this past year.

SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



1 herewith submit my eighth annual report as Superintendent of the Wilmington Public 
is for the year ending December 31, 1967- 



Schools. This report 



It gives me a great deal of pleasure in behalf of my colleagues to briefly describe and comment on the cur- 
riculum and staff implications of the State Survey that must parallel the Long Range Building Program if we 
are to maintain a quality program of education in Wilmington in the fields of art; business education; 
English; foreign language; guidance; industrial arts; library service; mathematics; music; health and physi' 
cal education; reading; science; and social studies. The report will conclude with some high lights of the 
1967 school year. 

CURRICULUM AND STAFF NEEDS 



Art ; In art, there is an immediate need to hire at least one more teacher in order to allow a non-studio 
minor in art at the high school and to assist at the elementary level. There is also a need to expand the 
media in which the students work at the intermediate schools; also to make provision for talented students 
at these two schools to take more than the minimum requirement of one art period per week. It is the feel i 
of the department that these needs can be met in the next year by the addition of one teacher, and by in- 
stituting new practices in the programming of art classes at the intermediate and high school levels. 

Business Education : Improvement in the business education curriculum can be brought about by taking the 
fol 1 owi ng steps : 

(a) Allocate an additional room in the business education area of the high school to facilitate 
consolidation of present offerings and to make additional business subjects possible for the 
students. 

(b) Reduce the present three year sequence in typing and shorthand to two years, thus affording 
time in the student's program for other subjects such as transcription. 

(c) Reduce business law to a half-year course, and offer business organization or business 
management the second half year, preferably during the senior year. 

(d) Reduce salesmanship to a one semester course in the junior year, followed by applied economi 
or some other business subject. 

(e) Offer personal-use typewriting as an elective for all students. 

The above goals can be met by the addition of one teacher, the re-allocation of space, and the purchase of 
additional equipment most of which will.be provided from the I968 budget. The re-allocation of space is 
already underway and should be completed by February, I968. 

Enq 1 i sh : The over riding need in this very vital department is a provision for the coordination of instrucj 
tion among the elementary schools and between the elementary and secondary levels. Concurrent with this | 
coordination should be the development of curriculum guides for all levels by instituting a summer worksho|: 
for teachers or some other in-service program. Then the class load of English teachers at the two inter- i 
mediate schools should be reduced. Lastly, more materials and equipment for enrichment purposes should be 
purchased , 



To carry out the above program will call for a considerable outlay of money, upwards of $20,000 for co- 
ordination and supervision, $20,000 to reduce class size, and $15,000 for more equipment and materials, j; 
cost is admittedly high; but some steps -- not fully worked out yet -- but not too costly in the initial 
stages, will be taken in I968 to obtain these goals. 



38 



Foreign Languages : The foreign languate program can be bolstered by: 



(a) Introducing beginning French in grade seven to complete a full six year sequence in the 
1 anguage . 

(b) Replacing, or renovating extensively, the language laboratory in the high school. 

(c) Introducing portable equipment in the intermediate schools to offset the lack of full scale 
laboratories in these schools. 

(d) Studying and making recommendations to the School Committee on better ways of planning student 
programs in the field of foreign languages in order that all students who participate in the 
program will find it a worthwhile and enjoyable experience. 

lOther than the recommendation dealing with the use of the language laboratories, the cost of realizing these 
(goals is modest and undoubtedly will be met in the I968-I969 school year. 

Guidance : In this department, there is an immediate need to conduct a follow-up study of the Wilmington High 
iSchool Class of 19^2. Only in this way can the School Committee and the citizens determine whether or not 
,our high school program of studies is providing our youth with what they need to prepare them for life in a 
'rapidly changing adult society. This study will be conducted by the department in I968. 

Looking further ahead, other goals established for this department to improve its effectiveness are: 

(a) The extension of guidance services into the elementary grades. 

1 (b) The addition of one guidance counselor at the intermediate schools, to keep the ratio of 

I counselor to counselee at 300 to 1. 

(c) The employment of a school psychologist. However, the demand for a school psychologist should 
be alleviated considerably, if the reorganization plan of the State Department of Mental 
Health continues on schedule. Such services would then be provided on a regional level more 
effectively and less costly than what a single community like Wilmington could do on its own. 

Industrial Arts : Courses in power mechanics, additional drafting courses, and a technology laboratory 
would all considerably enhance our industrial arts program; however, these improvements are possible only 
when additional high school facilities become available, or when the new Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational 
Technical School, of which Wilmington is a part, is providing similar courses. The primary need in this 
department at the present time is the addition of one teacher at the intermediate school level; the position 
will be provided for in the I968 budget. 

Library Service : The major goal in this area is to: 

(a) Continue to work toward meeting the standards of the American Library Association in regard 

to books and other collections. 

(b) Develop a materials center in each of the school libraries to supplement the learning materials 
] in the classroom. 

KiFederal funds under the provisions of Title II, Elementary and Secondary School Act, are helping us to achieve 
the first goal much sooner than anticipated. A start on establishing materials centers in some of the 

ifilibraries can be made in I968 by pooling a part of the allocations in several academic and fine arts depart- 
men t s . 

f^athematics ; As in the English program, there are needs for more coordination and supervision of the 
mathematics program in grades 1-12; for more direction in the development of in-service programs for teachers, 
Particularly at the elementary level; and for the writing of curriculum guides at both the elementary level 
fliand the secondary level. The department also feels that: 

(a) Reference libraries should be developed at the elementary and intermediate levels for both 
students and teachers. 



39 



(b) Prerequisites for mathematics courses, beginning witii Algebra I, should be established to 
improve the quality of the offering. 



(c) An elective mathematics course should be offered for seniors in addition to calculus and 
advanced mathematics. 

(d) The criteria for entrance requirements for the advanced placement program in mathematics shou 
be reviewed in view of the attrition rate in this program. 

Most of the above needs (a-d) can be met through departmental action and recommendation in the coming year. 
In regard to more coordination and supervision, it is too early to say at this writing whether or not this 
can be attained in 1968. 

Mus i c : A well balanced music program can be effected by taking the following actions in I968 and 1969: 

(a) Two additional music specialists should be added to the staff. In so doing, we would not onl 
realize the appropriate staff based on our current enrollment, but, would make possible the 
growth and expansion of the music program at two levels, elementary and intermediate. 

(b) With additional personnel placed at the elementary level, classroom visitations by the music 
specialists will be on a weekly basis rather than the current bi-weekly program. 

(c) Relieved of duties at the elementary level, the intermediate music specialists will be in 

a position to expand their respective programs. Projected into the near future, a practical 
program in grades 7 and 8 wi 1 1 include. General Music Classes, one period per week, all 1 
students; additional accelerated class for gifted students; chorus and band by audition; 
instrumental instruction; small ensembles, vocal and instrumental. 

Health and Physical Education : From a curriculum and staff point of view, the department feels that the 
health and physical education program can be improved by: 

(a) The employment of a part time elementary physical education teacher, effective February 1, 
1968, to become full time by September 1, I968. 

(b) The employment of a full time teacher of adapted physical education to work in grades 1-12. 

(c) The preparation of more curriculum guides. 

(d) The availability of a physician each Monday morning throughout the school year for the pur- 
pose of checking injuries to members of the varsity sports teams and to advise and consult 
with the school nurse or principals on health problems in their school districts. 

The first two needs can be met in the I968-I969 school year, but the last two should be taken under advise- 
ment with a view toward making recommendations for the School Committee for action in I969. 

Read i ng : The reading department plans to initiate several long range projects in the coming year that will 
keep the program current with modern trends. The projects are: 

(a) The extension of a developmental reading program in grades 9-12 that will be taught by read- 
i ng spec! al i sts . 

(b) The development of a guide which will point up reading skills and concepts that are appi icabl 
in the teaching of content areas - such as, science, social studies, and the like - for read' 
ing teachers in these areas. 

(c) The development of guides for teachers in grades 1-6 that go beyond what is outlined in the 
teachers' manuals of the basic reading books. 

(d) The strengthening of the remedial reading program. 

The high school developmental reading program and the strengthening of the remedial program can be started 
in 1968 by the addition of one more teacher, possibly twq in the department. Some preliminary planning for 
the development of the curriculum guides could be made in I968 and implemented by summer workshops in 1969- 



oc i ence : 



The science department is prepared to: 



(a) Offer an extended workshop for elementary teachers to familiarize them with new science 
ma ter i a 1 s . 

(b) Develop a modern science curriculum for grades 1-12. 

(c) Help to recruit elementary teachers with good science backgrounds against the time when the 
subject will be taught by specialists in grades four and five. 

To attain these goals, there is no reason why a start in the development of a modern science curriculum can 
lot be made during 1968, particularly if a summer workshop at an estimated cost of $3,600 can be included 
n the 1968 budget. A series of lessons to help elementary teachers familiarize themselves with new science 
laterials and methods could be gotten underway in I968 with little or no cost. As far as recruiting goes, 
lembers of the science department can be made part of the elementary interviewing teams in our I968 recruit- 
lent program. 

iocial Studies : The social studies department believes that the most critical need in this field is the 
levelopment of curriculum guides at the elementary and secondary levels. They believe that this can only 
ie done by establishing summer workshops for teachers to do the writing after the full staff, in committee 
sctlon during the regular school year, has identified the areas to be covered and has made suggestions on 
low they shall be covered. The department also feels that the social studies program in the high school can 

e enhanced by offering a pilot course called "Literature - United States History" that utilizes the inter- 
lisciplinary approach with the teachers involved. Looking further ahead, the need for a social studies 

oordinator in grades 1-12 is not unrealistic in the opinion of the department. 

'he extent to which the last two goals can be met will depend largely on departmental study and recom- 
mendation for action by the School Committee in I968. The last goal has possibilities for attainment in I969. 

■q sum up, the success of our educational program in the next few years will depend, to a large degree, on 
low soon the above program can be implemented. In our opinion, it can be carried out within the next three 
ears without undue strain on the Town's ability to pay. 

IGH LIGHTS : Some high lights of the I967 school year were: 

1. The Saturday Reading Skills Program under the provisions of Title II of the Elementary and 
Secondary Act was an over all success; in last year's project, all children showed some 
improvement in at least one phase of reading. Ninty-seven out of )\k children in attendance 
showed advancement of one or more steps in their reading levels. 

2. The summer school program concluded with 52U students receiving instruction in English, 
history, mathematics, typewriting, reading, and driver education in grades 7"12, and 370 
children receiving help in reading and arithmetic in grades 2-6. 

3- In the area of health services, physical examinations for pupils in grades 1, k, 8, and 11 
were given to 1,711 students. Vision tests were given to k,k78 students, hearing tests to 
k,k7S calling for retests and follow up for 235 in the former group and 2^5 in the latter. 
Tine tests were administered to 836 students in grades 1, 9, and 11, followed by 1,293 in 
grades 9-12 after an active case was discovered in the high school, with only two students 
requiring medication for one year. 

k. The success of the instructional film program initiated by the Director of Audio Visual 

Services was exceptional. To date, ^80 films have been shown to students at all levels in 
all schools. In addition, many new innovations for preparing and reproducing audio visual 
materials are in operation and readily available for use by the staff to supplement their 
teaching methods. 

5. The third year of the summer Head Start Program for disadvantaged pre-school children con- 
tinues to find it receiving widespread praise from federal officials for its content and 
operational efficiency. Forty-five children were enrolled in the program this past year. 

6. The continued and active support of the Parents and Friends of Exceptional Children (PAFEC) 
for our Special Education Program is heartwarming. Field trips, tickets to state and 

4) 



national events, Christmas Parties, and other parties are all paid for by PAFEC; in addition 
PAFEC sponsors the annual spring dance and graduation party for the graduates. Enrollment 
in this department is now at 79 - 9 in the trainable class, 21 in the primary educable di- 
vision, 22 in the intermediate educable division, and 27 in the senior educable division. 

7. A concerted effort was made to communicate School Department and School Committee activities 
to the public. Three issues of WILMINGTON SCHOOL NEWS, under the direction of the Assistant 
Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Pierce, were published, and plans have been made to publish 
four issues yearly in the future.

The property located at 92 Cook Street in Billerica was acquired as the site for the school. To develop the 
site in preparation for the building of the school, a property line and topographical survey was made. Further 
developments included testing for the location of subsurface sewerage under the direction of engineers of the 
State Department of Public Health and the Arch i tects ' of f i ce . In the near future, test borings will be made, 
and site clearance will be started. 

An agreement was signed with the architectural firm of Korslund, LeNormand £■ Quann, Inc. 

Due to the importance of the curriculum, new surveys of occupational interest of students in the region and 
the industrial needs of the area were conducted to assist the Committee in deciding the courses to be offered. 
The educational specifications which serve as a guide to the Architects were prepared and discussed in detail 
and were approved by the Committee. These were then submitted to the Massachusetts Department of Education 
and approved by the Bureau of Vocational Education and School Building Assistance Bureau. 



The next phase in the development of the school was the schematic design and equipment layouts. These plans 
were accepted and approved by the School Building Assistance Bureau, and are in the process of being reviewed 
by the Bureau of Vocational Education. 

In order to familiarize the residents of the five towns as to the proposed physical facilities and objectives 
of the school, the Committee prepared an eight-page brochure for distribution to the townspeople in the 
District. Public meetings were held in the member towns. Approval was received from all five towns for 

aau thor i zat i on to issue bonds in the amount of 225, 000 which is expected to cover the cost of the land, 

^building and equipping of the new school. 

TThe Committee voted an operating budget of $40,000 for the year I968. Appendix A (2 pages) shows the District 
ITreasurer's report through December 31i 1967- A capital budget report is shown in Appendix B. The amount to 
ibe raised by taxation from each member town is shown in Appendix C. 



Looking ahead in I968, we anticipate that final plans wi 1 
construction by early summer. 



be ready in the spring, making it possible to start 



TThe Committee is most appreciative of the fine support and assistance given this project by the townspeople.

completely equipped and will serve as the base of operations until the new school is built. ' 

CURR I CULUM : An Occupational Needs Study was made of industry, both in the five town region and the surroundir 
area, in order to help determine courses to be offered. The Committee approved the following courses;

Cu 1 i nary Arts 60 

Total 680 



FACILITIES PLANNING : Before completing the educational specifications and the shop and laboratory layouts, a 
considerable amount of research was done in visiting other schools in order to benefit by their experience. 
Very valuable assistance was given to me and the Committee in the planning of facilities by those in educatioi 
and industry who volunteered their services in an advisory capacity. A series of special reports were issued 
on those areas where it was felt research was needed, and would be beneficial in our planning. The following 
reports were made: 



1. Evaluative report of 19 schools 

2. Secretarial Sciences at the Southern Nevada Technical Institute 

3. Automotive 

k. Cul inary Arts 

5. Servicing of Heavy Duty Equipment 



EDUCATIONAL SPECIFICATIONS : Educational specifications were developed and approved with the assistance of 
Mr. James L. Burke, Senior Supervisor, Bureau of Vocational Education. Approval of the educational specifi- 
cations was also received from School Building Assistance Bureau. 

SCHEMATIC DESIGN ; The next step involved the layout of the shop and classroom areas as well as the equipment 
facilities in each shop and laboratory. A number of State supervisors cooperated in the development of those 
areas which are their specialties. Approval of this phase was made by the School Building Assistance Bureau 
on December 1, I967, and is in the process of being reviewed by the Bureau of Vocational Education. 

CONFERENCES ; A number of conferences were attended which included those of Directors at Westfield State Coll 
Superintendent-Directors of Regional Vocational Schools, Merrimac Valley Superintendents meetings, Massachusei 
Association of School Superintendents, Massachusetts Association of Metal Fabricators, and American Vocationcj 
Assoc i at i on . 

LEG I SLAT I ON : In December, Governor Volpe signed House Bill 1410, an act reimbursing cities and towns 50% of 
the expenses involved in maintaining approved vocational schools, and on December 12, he signed House Bill 
1412, an act providing 15% additional State aid to certain cities and towns which are members of regional 
schoo 1 districts. 

PUBLIC RELATIONS : Attended meetings of the Greater Lowell Area Planning Commission; spoke before a number 0I 
civic organizations who are interested in the progress of our school; attended public meetings and town meeti 
especially concerned with the financing of the school; attended meetings of the School Committees of the five 
towns; at times, met with the school superintendents who serve in an advisory capacity; assisted in the 



k6 



)reparation of the brochure that was mailed to the residents of the five towns; arranged for guidance and 
Bdm i n i St rat i ve personnel of the schools in the five towns to visit a similar vocational technical school. 

:ONCLUS ION : A fitting climax to this year's activities was received in a letter from the Facilities Planning 
iection, Bureau of Vocational Education, Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Washington, D.C. which, 
ifter reviewing our plans, stated, "Your school is one of the most excellent student-teacher oriented vocational- 
;echnical school plans it has been our privilege to review, and we compliment all the people involved for their 
'ision and acumen in providing a learning facility that will prove most useful to the students, teachers, and 
:ommunities served for years to come." 

am grateful to the many people who have helped, directly and indirectly, in the development of this school 
/hich I feel will be a credit to the entire region.

BOARD OF PUBLIC WELFARE 



The Wilmington Board of Public Welfare respectfully submits its Annual Report for the year 1967- The Board 
consists of Mr. Maurice ' Ne i 1 , Chairman of the Board, Miss Florence Balkus and Mrs. Anna Low as members of 
the Board. 

The five full-time employees of the Board are Walter F. Coleman, Director of Public Assistance, who also 
serves as secretary to the Board, Mrs. Rosemary Camillieri, Mrs. Dorothy Staffier, and Miss Ann Neelon are 
the Social Workers, Mrs. Irene Manning and Mrs. Mildred Dolan are the Clerk-Typists. All employees of the 
Welfare Board are hired under the Merit System and have Civil Service status which is required under the 1 av- 

The five categories of assistance under the supervision of the Board of Public Welfare are: General Relief,! 
Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Disability Assistance, Old Age Assistance, and Medical Assistance. 
The last four categories come under the Supervision of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and 
the State Department of Public Welfare, and we are reimbursed for the greater portion of the aid rendered by 
the Federal and State governments. General Relief is supported jointly by the State and local governments, 
with the Town assuming 80% of the cost of this category. 

All residents of Massachusetts have a right to apply for public assistance and to receive financial assistan 
plus social services if they are needed. They also have a right to expect that their applications will be 
processed promptly, that they be interviewed in privacy, treated with respect and consideration and that all 
information given be safeguarded with the strictest confidence. During 1967 there was an overall increase i 
the number of recipients in our five categories of assistance. This naturally increased the total cost of 
ass i stance . 

Medical Assistance program or 'Medicaid' showed the greatest increase, and as a result received a great dea' 
of adverse publicity nationwide. We believe this criticism was justified due to the type of application foi 
used, and the lack of routine investigation as in the other categories. The lack of fraud on the appl icatic 
form and the proper investigative procedures we believe was due to the political motivation of some of our 
law-makers, under the guise of revision of our out-moded conventional means of helping the poor. This way c 
aiding the poor by simplifying the application form and eliminating fraud would have been applied to the ot\ 
welfare programs this coming year if the taxpayers had not taken issue with this giveaway and let their viev 
be known to the Governor, the General Court, and the State Department of Public Welfare. 

During the past year. Chapter 658 of the Acts of I967 was passed and became a law of the State of Massachust 
This Act provides for the Reorganization of the Department of Public Welfare and also provides for the direc 
administration of the Public Welfare System by the State. The Act also provides that the Commonwealth assun 
all the costs of administration and Public Assistance. The effective date of this Act is July 1, I968. The 
is no need for recrimination at this time because this will have no effect on the law. We believe that we 
should now devote our best efforts to make this change-over as painless as possible for the Town and the 
Commonweal th . 

OLD AGE ASSISTANCE 

This category is a Federally-sponsored, State plan, administered by law through the local Boards of Public 
Welfare. The law requires local Boards to aid aged persons, sixty-five and over, who are in need and who h<! 
resided in Massachusetts for one year prior to application. Need is determined by applying budgetary standel 
set up by the State Department of Public Welfare. Some other requirements are personal property such as cas 
savings, bonds, etc. not to exceed $500. Liens are placed on property if the applicant has an interest in ! 
property. During the year 1967, 77 cases were aided under this program at the total cost of $72,539-50. 

AID TO FAMILIES WITH DEPENDENT CHILDREN 

Aid to Families with Dependent Children is another Federally-sponsored category administered by law through' 
the local Boards of Public Welfare to aid children that are deprived of parental support through desertion, 
mutual or legal separation, divorce, incarceration, death, disability, or unemployment of the parent. 

During I967, members of this Agency appeared in various courts a total of 67 times and were successful in m 
instances against delinquent fathers in our efforts to obtain support orders for their families. Most of th 
support orders were for partial support. Total amount collected during 1967 was $25,293.68. 



52 



iiuring 1967, eighty-five families were aided under this program with a total expenditure of $122,333-00.

isability Assistance is another Federally-sponsored State plan administered by law by the local Board of 
iublic Welfare. It requires the local Board to aid persons who have been declared permanently and totally 
isabled by the Medical Review Team of the State Department of Public Welfare and who are in need. Need is 
etermined by budgetary standards set by the State Department of Public Welfare. During the year I967, 
/wenty-four cases were aided on this category. Total expenditures for I967 were $18,9^8.15- 

EPICAL ASSISTANCE 

edical Assistance is also a Federally-sponsored State plan administered by law by the local Welfare Board, 
his program encompasses all medical aid as follows: 

To provide medical care and services for all persons eligible for financial assistance under the pro- 
isions of the General Laws, Chapters II8, II8-A, and 118-D. 

To provide medical care and services to all residents of this State who would, if needy, be eligible for 
id or assistance under Chapters II8, 1 1 8-A and II8-D and who meet the requirements of financial eligibility 
nder the Medical Assistance program. No durational residential requirements may be imposed. 

All children under twenty-one who could not qualify for public ass i stance but whose families cannot afford 
pay for all or part of the cost of the medical care they need. (This includes families in which the 
arents are working, but do not earn enough to pay for medical expenses.) During 1967, five hundred and 
hirty-nine families were aided under this program with total expenditures of $279,^81.81. 



his program requires local Boards to meet the community's statutory obligation to relieve a person in need, 
he decisions on who shall be aided and the amount given is left entirely to the local Board's discretion, 
nlike the Federal programs where the final decision rests with the State through an appeal process, the local 
oard makes the final decision. The local Boards, through their policies and decisions, invariably attempt 
D reflect community thinking. During the year I967, fifty-two cases were aided under this category with a 
Dtal expenditure of $15,2i^7.99• 



ne Welfare Board extends its thanks to all the town departments for their help and cooperation during the 
9St year. We also extend our thanks to the Community Fund, Civic Groups, Churches and other organizations 
no have worked and cooperated with this agency during the past year. 

uring the past year it was necessary to request additional funds due to the "Medicaid" program. However, 
5 believe that Wilmington was more fortunate than some of our neighboring Towns who had to borrow much larger 
njms for this purpose. Wilmington, by virtue of surpluses in other departments, did not have to resort to the 
enks . 

his will be our final Annual Report due to the fact that this Agency will be operated under the State Depart- 
mt of Public Welfare on July 1, I968. 

tie Welfare Director looks back in retrospect and with a feeling of nostalgia at his years of public service 
) Wilmington and of the many friends and acquaintances acquired since November 7, I960. It is also satisfying 
) look back at the kind treatment afforded this Agency by the various Town Managers, Boards of Selectmen and 
I nance Committees and their understanding of our problems and needs, also the confidence and good-will of 
1 the townspeople in their Welfare Department. 

especially owe a great debt of gratitude to the three members of the Welfare Board who supported and 
usted us through these years. The Town also owes these members of the Board a vote of thanks for their many 
:ars of service. Their only compensation being the satisfaction of having helped those who were in need.

PERMANENT BUILDING COMMIHEE 



The Permanent Building Committee of the Town of Wilmington respectfully submits its Annual Report for the 
Year 1967 which was productive in many areas. 

An engineering investigation of the condition of the North Intermediate School roof was completed and based 
thereon, plans and specifications were prepared for the removal and reconstruction thereof. The first bids 
for said reconstruction were rejected, they being over the appropriation. The Committee with its engineeri 
consultant set to work redesigning and replanning for the roof repair, and subsequently a contract was awar 
ed and early autumn saw completion of the contract. 

Pursuant to authority granted at Town Meeting, the Committee working in conjunction with the Superintendent 
of Schools, School Committee, and its architectural consultant, formulated final plans for an addition to 
the Woburn Street School, consisting of fifteen classrooms, library, gymnasium, and other specialized roomsf 
and areas. The construction contract was awarded to the low bidder. Milk Street Construction Co., Inc., am 
the classroom areas occupied on January 15> 1968. Because of a ledge problem, the voters at a Special Town 
Meeting appropriated an additional sum of $25,000 to complete the contract, and outside landscaping is 
scheduled for completion in the Spring of I968. 

Preliminary plans and cost estimates of the proposed Shawsheen Avenue School were rejected by the voters at 
a Special Town Meeting and pursuant to the direction of the voters at said meeting, the Committee in con- 
junction with its architectural consultant is presently preparing revised preliminary plans and cost estimai 
for submission to the voters at the I968 Annual Town Meeting. 

The Permanent Building Committee engaged an architectural consultant and supplied with a program statement 
from the Board of Library Trustees, the Committee pursued a study of design and cost estimates of a new 
municipal library. In compliance with the Town's vote authorizing the Committee to provide, and with the 
advice of the Board of Library Trustees and the library architect, the Permanent Building Committee has 
undertaken the designing, planning, construction and equipping of the new Wilmington Town Library which is 
scheduled to go out to bid in March I968.
